Service Year Alliance believes that the incorporation of a year of service into the post-secondary education experience will better prepare students to complete their degrees, secure meaningful employment, and become lifelong engaged citizens. Service years in higher education have the power to attract students, enliven education, and put graduates on pathways to careers.
Companies are helping young adults serve in a variety of ways, and that’s very good for companies.
Address local needs by expanding service year opportunities for young people in your community.
There are countless ways for nonprofits to join our service year community. From creating a service year program, to hosting service year opportunities on the Service Year Exchange, to becoming an Employer of National Service — we are always eager to harness the energy of nonprofits.
