Imagining America: Making National Service a Priority

By Task Force on National Service

American Jewish Committee (AJC), July 2007

The Task Force on National Service presents a brief on how to make national service a priority for those between the ages of 18-25. The reader is asked to imagine an America where the most commonly asked question of a young person turning eighteen is not "Where are you going to work?" or "Where are you going to college?" but instead "Where are you going to serve?" This brief offers both a history of national service as well as concrete recommendations for encouraging civic engagement.
