Background: "There can be no generation gap in America. The destiny of this nation is not divided into yours and ours - it is one destiny. We share it together . . we are responsible for it together . . . .
One thing governments must do is to find more effective ways of enlisting dedication and idealism of those young Americans who want to serve their fellow man. Therefore I will send a special message to the _ _(?)_ _ at congress asking that the Peace Corps and a number of other agencies throughout the government be brought together into a new agency - a new volunteer service corps that would give young Americans an expanded opportunity for the service that they want to give . . .
You are the first generation of young Americans to be given this chance . . .
You now have the opportunity, the obligation to mould the world you live in and you cannot escape this obligation."
