Civic Reflection is an intentional reflection process that helps staff, members, and others take a step back and consider important questions related to service and community work. During Civic Reflection, Corps members gather for interactive and highly participatory conversations to explore fundamental questions about aspects of service, community, and leadership. Members read or listen to a short piece of literature or view an image or video as a jumping off point for discussing their values, beliefs, and their relationships to other members and the communities in which they serve.
