AmeriCorps Alums joined with ServiceNation and 17 of the country’s leading national service organizations in an effort to make a year of service part of the American way of life in March 2014. The campaign will connect the stories and impact that AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps alumni are making every day on some of our nation’s toughest issues — from disaster relief and veteran reintegration to college access and childhood nutrition – to the writers and producers in Hollywood who are ready to tell these stories. Our goal is simple, but ambitious: We envision a day when young Americans turn to each other and ask, “Where will your year of national service be?”
AmeriCorps Alums serves as the National Strategic Partner for this campaign, highlighting the power of national service to be a cross-cutting solution for our country’s most pressing problems by uniting Americans in common purpose. Over the next three years, ServiceNation will lead this initiative, engaging entertainment companies and TV show executives in an effort to integrate powerful stories of service by AmeriCorps members and alumni into the scripts of their shows.
