"The States for Service coalition brings together advocates from across the country who are passionate about effectively engaging critical issues facing national service. Through S4S, we can mobilize our networks to advance policies at the national, state, and local levels that promote service and volunteerism and reduce barriers for individuals to serve their communities. Together, we can help shape the future of AmeriCorps and national service."
