YOUTH SERVICE AMERICA (YSA) is a resource center that partners with thousands of organizations committed to increasing the quality and quantity of volunteer opportunities for young people, ages 5-25, to serve locally, nationally, and globally.

Founded in 1986, YSA's mission is to strengthen the effectiveness, sustainability, and scale of the youth service and service-learning fields. A strong youth service movement will create healthy communities and foster citizenship, knowledge, and the personal development of young people. YSA envisions a powerful network of organizations committed to making service and service-learning the common expectation and common experience of all young people.

YSA began convening the fieldÂ’s leaders through a series of workshops and conferences to generate broader program and policy development goals for the field as a whole.
Universal service is usually thought of in terms of federal conscription, although it would be possible for states to impose a service requirement, as the states collectively require formal education.
