The Clinton Global Initiative announces $11 million commitment to the Service Year Effort



September 22, 2014 - At the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, the National Service Alliance—which includes The Franklin Project, ServiceNation, the National Conference on Citizenship, and Voices for National Service—joined former President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton to announce amajor commitment to expand national service in America. Building on the 20-year success of AmeriCorps, Service Year is a bold project designed to make a year of service a common expectation and opportunity for all 18-28 year olds.


June 6, 2014 - 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.
