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.
