Abstract:

As the baby boomer generation begins to retire, the United States will face serious worker shortages in nonprofit organizations, health care, and education. National service programs such as Teach For America, the National Community Health Corps, and AmeriCorps have a proven track record for not only encouraging individuals to enter these key fields, but cultivating civic leaders in these areas and helping bring disadvantaged youth into public service through further education and workforce training.

“Leaders for Every Sector: National Service as a Strategy for Leadership and Workforce Development,” an event sponsored by the Center for American Progress together with Voices for National Service, the Hudson Institute, and the Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, explored the ways in which national service addresses workforce needs.
