COVID-19 and the fallout from the 2020 election have exposed the fragility of American democratic institutions and the importance of rebuilding the nation’s civic culture. Should there be a universal expectation of national service for youth? What role should national service play in repairing American democracy and in helping the nation emerge from the pandemic?
