automatic registration  in the united states:  the selective service  example

For decades, federal law required men to register with the Selective Service when they turn 18 and to keep their registrations current through the age of 25. Enforceable law helped encourage registration; so did the agency’s efforts to make registration materials available in post offices, schools, and other public places.

In 2009, however, the Selective Service System has taken a more pro-active role in registration and has deployed a range of technological resources that make registration easier and more efficient. Automatic registration programs and data-sharing arrangements with other government agencies— including state departments of motor vehicles, Education, and the Department of Labor’s Job Corps Program— significantly help the Selective Service to register members of the target population and to keep registrations current.

The Back-to-school Kit for Counter-recruitment and School Demilitarization Organizing is a catalog of basic material useful to educating young people and school personnel about the realities of military enlistment and war. The catalog also includes some information on alternatives to enlistment, as well as items written for organizers seeking to reach out to local schools. All of the material in this catalog was carefully reviewed for relevancy and accuracy as of the January of 2024.  

A task force of knowledgeable organizers did the research. It does not include all of the available literature on  this topic because much of what exists is out of date or is no longer being produced by the original sources.

Consequently, we focused on identifying items that we felt were basic and most useful for effective organizing  and educating. New items may be added to future kits as they become available.


It’s very simple: Read the descriptions in the catalog and then go to the links that are listed to view or download documents that are relevant o your local organizing. In some cases, you will be able to reprint them for local reproduction; or, you will be able to order copies in bulk if they are offered by the original source.

NOTE: If you wish to print the catalog, be sure to choose the landscape setting in your print menu (i.e., horizontal).


The catalog groups items into various subject categories:

  • Counter-recruitment
  • Non-military Career, College and Service Alternatives
  • Gender and the Military
  • Delayed Entry Program (DEP)
  • Privacy  (Opt Out Forms/ ASVAB etc.)
  • Resources for Organizers
  • Contact Information

Before You Enlist and After You Say No

We asked The Ruckus Society and Training for Change to help us create a training manual to assist the growing counter-recruitment movement. The Ruckus Society has played a lead role in the Not Your Soldier counter-recruitment camps. Their experience, coupled with Training for Change's direct education approach, produced a result that is a pedagogically sound, information-packed series of workshops with a skill-building emphasis. Matt Smucker of the smartMeme collective and Beyond The Choir also contributed by writing the Media and Messaging workshop.

This new training manual contains:

  • Fifty group exercises
  • Eight complete workshops
  • Handouts and support articles

All tools designed with the direct education approach, which uses group exercises that emphasize participants' empowerment and taps their wisdom as much as possible, not a boring lecture-based teaching approach.

For more information about ordering a copy along with the companion DVD, see our publications page (ON SALE for $7.50!).
