Service Year Alliance is working to make a year of paid, full-time service — a service year — a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans. A service year before, during, or after college gives young people the chance to transform their lives, make an impact in their community, and become the active citizens and leaders our nation needs. Expanding service years has the power to revitalize cities, uplift and educate children at risk, and empower communities struggling with poverty.
When disaster strikes, service year corps members are often the first on the scene and the last to leave. These young people are helping communities immediately respond to natural disasters and continue to provide support to help rebuild long after the cameras leave. Many service year programs are in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Northern California right now, helping respond to the recent hurricanes and wildfires. These service year corps members are continuing to serve throughout the holiday season. Through this campaign, Service Year Alliance will send thank you gifts to these service year corps members who are selflessly giving up their holidays with their family to provide support to those who need it the most.
Sponsoring a service year corps member is easy! With the funds raised we will be able to send thank yous to the hard working service year corps members who are serving this holiday season.
For every additional $25 raised beyond our initial goal, an additional service year corps member will be able to receive a thank you gift.
