The Youth Service America Working Group on Youth Service Policy: Issue Papers.
Youth Service America, Washington, DC.
The three issue papers in this document contain the recommendations made by a Working Group on Youth Service America (YSA) regarding pending and proposed youth service legislation. "Recommendations to the President about the Youth Entering Service to America Foundation" discusses youth service and its mission. Operating tenets for the Youth Entering Service to America Foundation are proposed, and structural considerations relating to the Foundation are addressed. "Testimony before the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources about National and Community Service Legislation" (Frank Slobig) articulates what would later become the Working Group on Youth Service Policy's Statement of Principles. The focus is on the role of YSA, YSA's desire to build on the existing network of youth service programs, the youth service theory of complementary needs of the community and young people, a Trust of the United States as an alternate administrative model, and a greater role for governors. "Recommendations Regarding Federal Involvement in the Field of Youth Service" presents the set of six principles the Working Group considers essential to preserving the vigor and integrity of the youth service movement and recommendations to guide the President and Congress.
