ServiceNation is working towards the day when a year in a national service program like AmeriCorps is a common expectation for Americans, and when national service is universally accepted as a strategy for putting people to work, tackling pressing social challenges and uniting Americans in common purpose.
If every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans – and eventually one million – dedicate a term of national service as tutors, mentors, teachers, disaster responders, and more, we believe that America will be transformed into a nation of engaged and connected citizens, with a sense of shared identity and common purpose.

Several key leaders have also added their voice to the occasion as ServiceNation launches a sweeping campaign to make national service a way of life.
