voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm steve ember.

voice two:

and i'm shirley griffith. this week on our program, we look at some popular national service organizations.

(music)

voice one:

josh keller of bethesda, maryland, is a twenty-four-year-old musician. he studied music for many years. he graduated from the university of maryland with honors. he is a fine horn player. not only that, he knows how to lead an orchestra.

but these days, josh keller is spending his time digging, cleaning up storm damage and helping repair houses. he is working in port arthur, texas, which was struck by hurricane rita a year ago.

josh keller is a member of a program called americorps-nccc -- the national civilian community corps.

voice two:

americans are not required to perform national service, except in times of military drafts. but programs like americorps are finding plenty of interest these days.

some people say they became interested because of the september eleventh terrorist attacks five years ago. others might be influenced not just by world events but also by their schooling. american schools are increasingly urging young people to get involved in service projects. in some schools, community service is required.
