We send our congratulations to Germain Castellanos as a representative of Youth Conservation Corps, Youthbuild, AmeriCorps, and The Corps Network as one of our former Corpsmembers of the Year for being honored by the White House as a modern representative of Cesar Chavez's legacy.

Way to go Germain!

Germain was a Corpsmember of the Year in 2005. You can learn about his accomplishments since that time by reading a profile we recently wrote here. He also represented us and AmeriCorps as part of 2013's American Graduate Day special on PBS.

Earlier this year, Jon Brito of Kupu / Hawaii Youth Conservation Corps, and Anthony "Chako" Ciocco of Southwest Conservation Corps were also recognized as Champions of Change for engaging the next generation of conservation leaders.
