Big tech should create a national service program to make the US more united

  • These three tech giants alone could create a platform unlike any other: A means for young Americans to identify a place to stay (Airbnb), an organization to help serve (Google) and a community to engage (Facebook).
  • Whereas the largest domestic service programs — such as AmeriCorps and YouthBuild — serve as middlemen between those volunteering and organizations in need of assistance, ASC would streamline that connection.
  • By creating a direct connection between volunteers and organizations, the ASC would improve upon the current system in two meaningful ways: (1) by cutting out the middleman, a greater array of organizations, including far more private, for-profit entities, would be able to request assistance rather than having to go through some bureaucratic process to become eligible for volunteers; (2) broadening the number of organizations and service opportunities would attract more young Americans to seriously consider spending a year committed to service.
