Service Year Alliance has a three-part policy and advocacy strategy to engage members of Congress to support national service and increase funding to expand service year opportunities with AmeriCorps, the Peace Corps and YouthBuild.
Federal funding accounts for more than half of all national service support but has grown little over the past decade.
