In honor of #NationalSpeakUpForServiceDay, our WorkingNation #WeeklyChangemaker this week is AnnMaura Connolly, the president of Voices for National Service, a coalition committed to expanding opportunities for Americans of all ages to serve and volunteer.

AnnMaura is also the chief strategy officer and executive vice president of City Year, Inc., an AmeriCorps program dedicated to helping urban schools and students succeed. Connolly has devoted her life to being a leading voice for the idea that a year of service should be a common expectation and experience of every American and has built a career around growing citizen service as a strategy for solving critical issues and developing the next generation of leaders in the U.S. and abroad.⁠

In 2017, Connolly published her first book, In the Service of Others: America At Its Best, a collection of compelling stories from those who have served in national service programs across the country in their own words.⁠

Would you dedicate a year of your life to national service? What would you do?
