At EdCorpsCT, we believe in the power of young people to change the world, and that the idealism of young people is one of our nation’s most precious natural resources. Robert F. Kennedy once said that even the smallest acts of service create ripples of hope that spread through communities; we agree, and we know that ten months of full-time service is far more than a small act. We dream of a day when every young adult in America will dedicate a year to citizen service, creating a tidal wave of hope and idealism certain to transform even America’s greatest problems.
