State Service Commissions & National Service
We may agree that service is a good thing, but that doesn't mean that it's simple. It engages a variety of perspectives, identities, and competing needs. How do service participants talk across difference? How do we make authentic connections both with the people we serve and the people we serve with? Civic reflection helps state service commissions and national service groups to explore these questions and support service participants across the country.
- Higher rates of retention and a noticeable increase in renewal
- Improved relationships between and among program staff and service members
- Member development and satisfaction – with 70% of participants saying that civic reflection increased their commitment to serve.
