YOUTH SERVICE AMERICA (YSA) is an international resource center that partners with thousands of organizations committed to increasing the quality and quantity of volunteer opportunities for young people, ages 5-25, to serve locally, nationally, and globally. Founded in 1986, YSA’s mission is to expand the impact of the youth service movement with communities, schools, corporations, and governments.
YSA envisions a global culture of engaged youth who are committed to a lifetime of service, learning, leadership and achievement.
We work toward that mission through four core strategies:
• Organizing Public Policy and Awareness Campaigns
• Convening the Field
• Offering Incentives and Recognition
• Providing Information and Educational Resources.
