CCCO's present activities include counter-recruitment activism through its "Military Out of Our Schools" program, production of a youth magazine, AWOL! Youth for Peace and Revolution, in collaboration with the War Resisters League, and a "Third World Outreach Program", which focuses on the issue of the "poverty draft," where some impoverished young people, disproportionately people of color, feel that they are coerced into military service by a lack of options.
CCCO has previously served as the clearinghouse of the national GI Rights Network, which includes the operation of GI Rights Hotline. This work is currently in a state of transition, with CCCO continuing to play a significant role in the work of the Network. At present, over 2000 calls are received each month on the Hotline.
