Service Year

The Service Year Exchange connects young people who want to do a service year with organizations who are looking for diverse talent to help them reach their mission. 
There are thousands of service year opportunities available, including federally funded opportunities with programs like AmeriCorpsPeace Corps, and YouthBuild

The Service Year Exchange is powered by Service Year Alliance, an organization that is working to make a year of paid, full-time service — a service year — a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans. A service year before, during, or after college — or as a way to get back on track — gives young people the chance to transform their lives, make an impact in their community, and become the active citizens and leaders our nation needs. Expanding service years has the power to revitalize cities, uplift and educate children at risk, and empower communities struggling with poverty. It can unite the most diverse nation in history, binding people of different backgrounds through common cause. 
Together with the service year community, we’re expanding service year opportunities throughout our nation and across the world.
