Americans from all sectors are uniting behind a big idea -- that a "service year" becomes a common expectation and opportunity for 18-28 year olds as a path to completing college and finding employment. Programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps, as well as nonprofit organizations, provide several thousand service opportunities annually.
Now in its second year, the Service Year + Higher Education: Innovation Challenge will explore the best ideas for linking service years to learning. It will build on the ideas presented in the 2015 Challenge to develop new designs for translating service years into course credit, helping students identify their passions, and increasing college completion rates.
