    Discovery Grants

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Franklin Project intends to create a system that supports one million civilian national service opportunities every year for 18-28 year olds with a mixture of public and private funds. Community service helps young adults get valuable job experience, learn to work across race, class and geographic lines, and prepare them more fully for education or careers. It can be particularly valuable for veterans in their transition from military to civilian life. Volunteers conduct work valuable to their communities, including early childhood education, maintaining public lands and waterways, building housing and parks, and assisting the elderly.

Acting through a panel co-chaired by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Harvard Kennedy School Professor David Gergen, the Project will seek to ensure greater respect in the public sphere for the identities of religious communities, foster more positive relationships between people of different faiths, and create partnerships among disparate organizations in service to the common good.
