The NYC national Growth (+Sustainability) Plan is a collaboration of the NYC National Service Leadership Council to mobilize a high impact and highly recognized Service Year initiative to strengthen national service organizations and engage young adults in service to their city, empowering their individual growth and civic leadership while delivering measurable change in key City priorities such as Education, Economic Opportunity, and Environment.


The NYC national Growth (+Sustainability) Plan will engage thousands more in service, positively impact city needs, raise the quality of life for all New Yorkers, and serve as a high performing national model for the nation. 
  • Double the size of NYC national service programs from 4,000 to 8,000 members by 2020

  • Focus on service as a unifying opportunity for young adults to take action in their community

  • Develop a sustainable funding model to protect the base of current programming and position for accelerated growth

  • Increase in the number of host organizations and their capacity to serve NYC communities
