National Service

YouthBuild USA serves on the steering committee of VOICES for National Service, which is the prime advocate for expanding AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC, and other programs of the Corporation for National and Community Service. Within that context, YouthBuild USA works with The Corps Network and Public Allies to advocate for opportunities for low-income people to be included as service-givers in their communities, not just as service receivers.  

YouthBuild USA and The Corps Network serve as the opportunity youth pillars of the ServiceNation Cultural Campaign. We also support the Franklin Project which is working to expand the concept of a full-time year of service for all young adults throughout America.
