Last February, the House of Representatives passed a year-long spending bill that eliminates funding for the Corporation for National & Community Service and all of its programs.
These programs -- like AmeriCorps and Learn & Serve America -- provide cost-effective, valuable services to local communities all across America through organizations like Teach For America, City Year and Jumpstart.
The impact of cutting funding for these organizations is dire: more than 150,000 jobs and 5 million volunteer positions will be lost, and millions of children, seniors, and disabled Americans will lose the support they rely on.
Take action today to Save Service in America.
With your help, we can protect the organizations and volunteers who are working together to keep our communities strong.
