Speaking Out for Youth Service. It's Not Just the Thought That Counts.
Youth Service America, Washington, DC.
This packet of materials was prepared to help participants at a Youth Service America conference to understand proposed youth service legislation and to lobby their Congressional representatives/senators for its passage. The packet contains a fact sheet on the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources Omnibus Youth Community Service Bill (Kennedy Bill) that explains what the bill proposes--school-based youth service projects, full-time youth service corps, national service pilot projects, expansion of VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) and financial support for senior service programs. It also contains information on President Bush's "thousand points of light" initiative for volunteer service; recommendations regarding federal involvement in the field of youth service from Youth Service America; tips for a successful Capitol visit; guidelines for lobbying for tax-exempt nonprofit organizations; lists of key Senate and House committee members; names and Washington office and telephone numbers for all Senators and Representatives; a Congressional schedule; and a map of Capitol Hill.
