Abstract:  New results from a longitudinal study of AmeriCorps members demonstrate the early impacts of national service on members' civic engagement, education, employment, and life skills.

They also are more likely to choose public service careers. Thirteen technical appendices included. See also Still Serving: Measuring the Eight-Year Impact of AmeriCorps on Alumni.
