Service Year Alliance
Service Year Alliance is an organization relentlessly pursuing a bold vision — making a year of service a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans as a way to tackle important challenges while transforming their own lives.
Service Year Alliance Goals
The strategic plan covers four years (2016-2019), with two overarching goals:
Grow service years from 65,000 positions each year to 100,000; and
Create the conditions for large-scale, long-term growth.
Service Year Alliance is building a three-part infrastructure necessary to meet those two goals:
Catalyze supply of service years
Build awareness and demand among young people
Unlock more funding from public and private sources
Service Year Alliance is only focused on growth that delivers a two-fold impact: measurably addressing defined needs in communities and changing the lives of those who serve. They are doing this by pursuing growth in specific areas to address specific challenges; developing issue-area growth cohorts; and writing public policy aligned around defined challenges.
