About this grant

This grant will enable Voices for National Service, a program of City Year, Inc., to engage leaders in education, youth development, and national and community service fields to examine ways service can increase educational and employment opportunities for low- to moderate-income youth. Through its broad and diverse coalition, the grantee will bring together youth service and education stakeholders to highlight best practices, pinpoint barriers, and identify gaps in service opportunities. Their findings will become part of a national white paper highlighting the role national and community service is currently playing and the potential it has to support youth on their education-to-career journey.
