To whom it may concern:
I am writing to support People’s Lobby’s American World Service Corps (AWSC) National Service Proposal.
By implementing a national service program, communities can engage their residents in community service through nonprofit organizations and receive a stipend for their work.
National service would be a wonderful way for young people to acquire skills and insights as full-time national service volunteers while becoming part of the service fabric that helps knit our nation together.
As a nation we seem to be losing the cohesiveness that grew out of the Greatest Generation. That cohesiveness grew in no small part from the tremendous number of Americans who did a variety of National Service projects at home and abroad.
I hope you will support bringing character-enriching national service back to America.
Thanks for your consideration.
