Service Year Alliance strives to grow service years in America, expanding from 65,000 opportunities today to 100,000 by 2019, and 1 million within a generation. We are proud to partner with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) — a federal agency that places more than 80,000 AmeriCorps members in 15,000 locations across the country — to boost the recruitment of young people to serve in AmeriCorps.
“We are thrilled to partner with Service Year Alliance to inspire the next generation to serve in AmeriCorps and we want to offer our congratulations to these three organizations for coming together to promote service years in America,” said Wendy Spencer, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. “By uniting our efforts and resources, we will foster even more public-private collaboration and encourage the growth and investment in AmeriCorps. This partnership comes as we prepare to induct the one-millionth AmeriCorps members, so this is another example of the growing interest and vitality of efforts to recruit the next one-million members to serve through AmeriCorps.”
