Background Study of National Service Movement

The national service movement is at an inflection point. After nearly a decade of little or no year-over-year growth, the field is poised to enter a new era and make substantial leaps forward towards scale. Service Year Alliance (SYA) is a national nonprofit organization working to make a year of paid, full-time service – a service year – a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans to transform lives, strengthen communities, and improve civic health. The Lodestar Foundation made a grant to SYA to produce a landscape analysis of national  service options, including military, religious, nonprofit, business and government programs, with the overall goal of creating an overarching collaboration to inform and market service year programs to young people.
