What are ServeNext Chapters?
Chapters are geographically based groups of citizen-advocates challenging elected officials and candidates to support and expand National Service. They are also part of our larger national community of active citizens who want to be a part of big, citizen-driven change in our country.
They will be maintained on our website with our online organizing and social networking tools. Each Chapter will have a Leader(s) responsible for communicating key events and updates with Members.
What do ServeNext Chapters and Members do?
Chapters create a powerful constituents’ voice for National Service in important areas. To advance National Service, our team of citizen-advocates may be asked to take modest actions. For example, Members may be asked to sign a petition, attend a town hall forum with local candidates, or contact their Representatives in Congress.
