To advance our goals, we engage board members and Leadership Council members, influential thought leaders, and federal, state, and local policy makers, as well as thousands of advocates across the country. We also develop policy proposals, white papers, and policy-related events in support of national service.
As the only privately-funded national organization dedicated to strengthening service years across programs, we are able to take action and add value in ways that individual service year programs cannot. As such, Service Year Alliance is uniquely positioned to be a powerful voice in support of a future where a year of service is part of growing up in America.
Service Year Alliance brings a unique combination of capabilities and assets to the sector:
A policy team with deep expertise in the national service field and direct experience working with state legislators, leading public policy initiatives, and campaigns. And an advocacy operation that has successfully mobilized thousands of grassroots volunteers and a bipartisan alliance of influential Americans to make the case for public investment in national service.
