As part of their mission to advance the corps movement, The Corps Network (TCN) invites corps to seek accreditation for excellence. Green City Force engaged in this process over the past year and we are thrilled that at the annual TCN conference last week in DC, The Corps Center of Excellence announced GCF’s accreditation for Excellence in Corps Operations.


Accredited-Corps_sealFollowing an in-depth evaluation of internal operations, financial management practices, risk management practices, governance standards and youth programming operations, Green City Force received accreditation from the Corps Center of Excellence (CCE), the national accrediting body for Service and Conservation Corps, and was endorsed by the CCE as a Workforce Development Corps.

GCF founder and Executive Director, Lisbeth Shepherd, shared: “It was an honor to be recognized as one of 26 corps who bear this distinction nationally, and the only in New York State, in the company of our peers. We are always seeking to improve and together will keep pushing for excellence!”

As an accredited Corps, Green City Force has proven its ability to provide safe, relevant, and meaningful service experiences. GCF also demonstrated its ability to provide high-quality project outcomes to partners.

“Demonstrating that you meet industry standards is an important marketing tool for Corps that let’s potential partners and stakeholders understand that your program produces high-quality outcomes,” said Mary Ellen Sprenkel, President & CEO of The Corps Network. “It shows that Corps programs are an excellent investment that benefits both the young people they serve and their communities.”

Green City Force was also endorsed as a Workforce Development Corps, a formal recognition of our commitment to increasing the work-readiness of individual Corps Members by connecting them to supportive services and employers.
