Our Coalition

Working Together

Since 2003, Voices for National Service has worked to create and expand federally-supported service opportunities in America.

As a coalition of national and local service programs, state service commissions, and individual champions of service, we work to educate the nation’s leaders on the impact of national service programs and to develop bipartisan support for the federal investment in national service initiatives.

Voices for National Service is proud to represent the diversity of the entire national service family, including programs supported by AmeriCorps, AmeriCorps Seniors, The Volunteer Generation Fund, and State Service Commissions. The coalition’s work is driven by the needs of our members and is overseen by a Steering Committee of leaders from the national service community.

Our work would not be possible without financial support from our member organizations.

By becoming a member of Voices for National service, your organization can support our critical mobilization, advocacy, policy, and research initiatives to secure a bright future for national service in America.
