Conservative Anabaptist Service Program
This program operates under CAM and provides alternative places of employment for conscientious objectors to serve should the U.S. government activate a military draft. CASP has pilot projects in place where draft-age men work just as if there would be a draft. In 2017, 146 volunteers served on 14 rebuilding and forestry projects. The goal of CASP is to provide ethical and moral work environments for alternative service workers.
