President Obama Signs the Serve America Act

The President has just signed the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, joined by Senator Kennedy, President Bill Clinton, the Congressional leaders who supported the legislation, and countless others dedicated to passage of the bill at the SEED School, where service is a core part of the curriculum. Appropriately, the President announced a major call to service:

A week from tomorrow marks the 100th day of my administration.  In those next eight days, I ask every American to make an enduring commitment to serving your community and your country in whatever way you can.  Visit WhiteHouse.gov to share your stories of service and success.  And together, we will measure our progress not just in number of hours served or volunteers mobilized – but in the impact our efforts have on the life of this nation.
