Service Years in Action: January 2017

2017 has kicked off with a fast start for Service Year Alliance.

We're actively recruiting young people across the country to participate in service years, advocating for the expansion of service years with the new Congress and Administration, and wrapping-up some yearlong planning for our organization.

Meanwhile, service year corps members continue to make a huge impact in communities across the country. We've pulled together some of the best service year stories from January 2017.

Take a few minutes and check out all of the incredible ways that service year corps members are making an impact as we kick off 2017. They continue to show how young people address our communities' most pressing challenges -- from preserving conservation areas in heavy snow and repairing flood-damaged homes, to organizing incredible MLK Day of Service activities in communities.

Here's to a great 2017!
