National Service in 2016 … and Beyond (Aspen Policy Series)

Imagine a presidential election in which candidates from both parties and leaders across sectors come together and commit to transforming what national service looks like in America. What if our leaders joined in a bipartisan fashion in support of a universal system of national service in which all young Americans do one year of service? This panel focuses on the work the Franklin Project is doing to elevate national service as an issue in the upcoming elections and discusses the ways the audience can help us in this effort. Learn how the government, higher education, philanthropic organizations, the private sector, media, and service organizations can partner with us to turn our vision of a “service year” for all young Americans into a reality.
