Aspen Institute Project Seeks Young Leaders to Catalyze Support for National Service
The Aspen Institute’s Franklin Project has a “big idea” – that national service should be an expectation, opportunity and rite of passage in America – and it has launched the Franklin Project Ambassadors Program to fulfill that vision.
This year-long leadership development program and local engagement strategy will catalyze support for universal national service in communities across the
country by recruiting up to 50 emerging leaders ages 28-45 from up to 35 communities across the country to take part.
Beginning in June with an all-expenses-paid seminar and training in Washington, D.C., Ambassadors will return to their home communities empowered to expand service year opportunities and inspire to engager in national service.
Successful candidates will have demonstrated community connections, convening power and a commitment to national service. Although the project is targeting spe
cific metropolitan areas, it will consider applicants from anywhere in the country.
The application deadline is March 16.
