    If your organization is seeking top talent consider how service year alumni can meet that need: The Employers of National Service initiative builds a pipeline of alumni from service year programs such as AmeriCorps, Teach For America, Peace Corps, and others to careers in all sectors.

    Individuals who do a service year are mission-driven, innovative, and team oriented. Alumni of service year programs report high levels of career-oriented soft skills including cultural competency, self-efficacy, and career-specific skills.

    This webinar will share data about career-related outcomes of service year corps members, how service year positions translate to careers, and how employers can get involved with the Employers of National Service initiative to identify, attract, and recruit top talent.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Articulate the skill development and contribution to the work force associated with participating in a service year;
    • Understand the benefits of employing alumni of service year programs and how to join Employers of National Service initiative; and
    • Discuss opportunities to increase service year alumni hiring at your organization.

    Registration includes three-month, post-event access to the webinar archive.

    MacKenzie Moritz, Chief of Staff and Chief Partnerships Officer, Service Year Alliance

    Moritz serves as Service Year Alliance’s chief of staff and leads several of the strategy teams. His passion for national service stems from his experience as a 2006 Teach For America (TFA) corps member and his experience working on TFA’s staff. As the managing director of TFA’s national recruitment strategy and technology team during the organization’s most successful recruitment seasons in TFA’s history, Moritz saw firsthand the potential for young people to come together to improve society—as well as the large number of young people eager to serve, but unable to find an opportunity to do so.

    Moritz earned undergraduate degrees in economics and political science from the University of Florida and a master’s degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania. Additionally, he is a graduate of various fellowship programs, including the Montpelier Summit for Emerging Millennial Leaders, the State Department/RISD Human Centered Design & Public Policy Institute, and the AEI Leadership Network, and is a member of the NationSwell Council and the Armed Services Arts Partnership Advisory Council. He lives in Washington, D.C., with his wife Melissa.
