National Service is the cause to which Donald Eberly has dedicated his life: all of his professional positions have been related directly or indirectly to that cause. In the 1950S he taught in Nigeria and Turkey; in the 1960s he was a foreign student adviser at Harvard University, an undersecretary of the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Education, and a consultant on service learning. As a government employee in the 1970s, he worked in the ACTION Office of Planning and Policy Development, and, in the 1980s, with the alternative service section of the Selective Service system. He founded the National Service Secretariat l in 1966 and has continued to be its executive director.
