Show details: National Service and Volunteerism
It's been more than four decades since John F. Kennedy urged Americans to "ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." President Obama and a bipartisan team of U.S. senators are now working to revive that spirit of volunteerism. We explore the promise and limits of national service programs, and examine proposals designed to make "giving back" a rite of passage.
