The Summit at Gettysburg was convened by the Franklin Project, in partnership with Voices for National Service, ServiceNation, and the National Conference on Citizenship. With leaders convening from all across the country, the Summit worked to advance the "big" idea:  that national service would be voluntary, but expected, in the military or as a civilian for a full year or more at modest pay, and a rite of passage for every young American.
