Research Convenings

Each year, CNCS’ Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE) organizes convenings to provide a space for thinkers and doers across sectors to connect, share research and experience, and build the relationships needed to better infuse evidence into future action. ORE welcomes researchers, thought leaders, policymakers, and practitioners interested and involved in the fields of national service, social innovation, and civic engagement.
