Alen Khazei, National Service and Social Entrepreneurship

Sep 27, 2007 Published under Favorite Quotes, Leadership

My friend Alan Khazei, who founded City Year, is on to a very bold new effort to build a national youth service movement network among social entrepreneurs. 

He quotes President Truman to remind people that the highest office in the land is that of Citizen.

Alen is looking to hire a whole slew of new team members for this new venture, called "Be the Change."

    My fear is that these national service programs will be used by selective service for “alternative service”.

    Would you be willing to spread the word about It’s a site dedicated to shattering the myths surrounding the selective slavery system and building mass civil disobedience to stop the draft before it starts!

    Our banner on a website, printing and posting the anti-draft flyer or just telling friends would help.
