The Shutdown Startup

If we can’t service our country, we’ll serve our community

If the federal government shuts down in early March, thousands of passionate public servants won’t be able to do their jobs. But that doesn’t mean they can no longer serve. The Shutdown Startup aims to connect individuals affected by a shutdown to volunteer service opportunities, so they can channel their passion for service to help their communities. No one wants a shutdown. But if it happens, we can still have a positive impact on our country. The Shutdown Startup is a short term initiative powered by volunteers from the federal government, the non-profit sector, and you. For more information and to commit to service, please click here.
