ServiceNation: volunteers for improving education& mentoring

In 2007, Alan launched Be The Change, Inc., which is dedicated to building national movements of citizens and leaders to push for bold solutions to some of our nation's most stubborn social problems, from failing schools to chronic poverty. Be the Change's first major campaign, ServiceNation, organized a coalition of more than 200 non-profits, with a reach of some 100 million Americans, to promote voluntary service as a front-line strategy for improving education, mentoring youth, preserving the environment, supporting and engaging veterans in civilian service, and fighting poverty. The ServiceNation Summit, held on September 11 and 12, 2008, united both Presidential candidates, then-Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain, who expressed their strong support for citizen service and the Serve America Act.
