A "...place that honors service"


A team of AmeriCorps NCCC stand in uniform with shovels with Craig Middleton, Executive Director, and Nancy Hellman Bechtle, chair of the Presidio Trust board, beside the well at El Polin Spring.The new National Center for Service and Innovative Leadership opened its first building last summer on the grounds of the Presidio, a former military post in San Francisco. "Instead of training people to protect the country, like the military academies that have long been a part of America’s history, this one will develop leadership skills for people involved in volunteerism and national service," writes Philanthropy Today.

 "The center—set up by the Presidio Trust, a federal agency charged with preserving and repurposing the 1,491-acre site—will offer leadership training; bring together nonprofit, government, and business leaders for discussions; and establish a research program to highlight successful approaches to solving community problems."
