Civic Pathways Out of Poverty and Into Opportunity

Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) White Paper Makes Case for a New Role and Purpose for Service.

This paper is the product of nearly two years of conversation, research, deliberation and writing. PACE and its members were interested in exploring the idea that service and civic engagement can be more purposely focused on workforce development goals and post-secondary educational achievement for low-income youth and young adults.The project had a particular interest in reversing the conventional view of service as something "done to" people in need. As PACE began its outreach and research they discovered that there were many other individuals and organizations interested in joining this conversation. The white paper is a result of this wide-ranging dialogue with those in the service field about how these "civic pathways out of poverty and into opportunity" can be created.
