Service Year Alliance elevates service years as an experience that transforms lives, strengthens communities, and fuels civic renewal.
We lift up stories about the impact of service years on individuals, communities, and our country as a way to persuade decision makers — including federal, state, and local legislators, as well as private sector leaders — to unlock funds for service years. Additionally, we aim to inspire the next generation of young Americans to do a service year.
We do this through social media campaigns, earned media, partnering with thought leaders on opinion editorials, and more.
“We Americans suck at regimentation and blindly following orders from the top down. But we’re pretty good at local initiative, youthful dynamism and decentralized civic action. We need a Covid response that fits the kind of people we are. National service is an essential piece of that response.”
-David Brooks, New York Times, May 2020
