Action Alert: Save Youth Service in America
The U.S. House of Representatives is considering a proposal that would cut funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service. This would have disastrous effects on American communities, youth unemployment and the economy.
Youth service strengthens communities, builds experience and generates jobs. Student Conservation Association members alone render more than two million hours of conservation service every year in America's parks, forests, refuges and communities. Countless park rangers, wildlife biologists, and environmental educators started their careers with SCA service programs.
Youth service programs tackle a backlog of maintenance issues in national parks and historic and cultural sites. They also provide more than 500,000 jobs for young adults and seniors serving on the front lines of natural disasters.
These are programs we can't afford to lose. Please write to your Congressional representative today and tell them you don't want funding cut for service programs!
