Our country is facing an historic moment of upheaval and division. There are no easy fixes and a better future requires bold ideas. This podcast will explore one of them: national service.  Imagine young Americans from every background serving side-by-side for an intense year of service. Imagine the example this would set for our nation while developing the purpose-driven leaders we need. On this podcast, host Ken Harbaugh -- former Navy Pilot, author, and nonprofit leader -- will explore the topic with former military leaders, academics, policymakers, and young Americans.  With so much news of what is broken in America, this podcast will be an inspiring series on what we can do about it.

Episode Date
Episode 1: Serving in Common Purpose
Join host Ken Harbaugh as he explores national service from a different angle each week on Rebuilding America. He’ll talk to one or two experts in the national service movement, as well as an alum of a service program to get an intimate look at the positive impact of service on those who step up.  Today, on the very first episode of Rebuilding America, Ken talks to Pete Buttigieg, former candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, and Congresswoman Chrissy Houlahan, representative from Pennsylvania’s 6th District.  The alumni testimonial this week is from Yasmeen Shaheen-McConnell, the Managing Director of Strategic Engagement for Service Year Alliance and an alum of the Arab American Resource Corps.
