A New Era for National Service

Americans are living in a period of disconnection and are grappling with existential questions about the future of our economy, democracy, and planet. 

We are on the verge of a generational shift in which the leaders of tomorrow are coming of age during a global pandemic, a rapidly shifting labor market, and a heightened distrust in our most sacred institutions. 

It’s time to rethink the role young people play in solving these key challenges and recognize their desire to be a part of a solution. It’s up to us to empower them with new ways to lead and pave a path toward a future where they feel prepared to become the future employers, politicians, educators, neighbors, citizens, and leaders that America needs. 

National service is an investment in our next generation that can fuel much-needed civic renewal in America. 

By making national service part of growing up in America, we are offering a modernized pathway to opportunity for young people — one that builds skills for success in a changing economy, one that develops more empathetic leaders who are connected to one another and our communities, and one that offers solutions for creating a more resilient and sustainable planet. 

We need your support in order to reach this vision. 

Service Year Alliance is working to make a year of paid, full-time — a service year — a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans.
