This paper examines transnational social policy in the context of a proposal for a North American Community Service (NACS) which seeks to place youth from Mexico, the United States, and Canada together in community service projects in each of the three North American countries. The goal of the initiative is to foster a transnational approach to youth and community development and build crossborder institutions of cooperation. After describing the project, I use the NACS proposal to consider possibilities and challenges of transnational social policy on a broader scale.
