How to Create a Service Year Program
This handbook provides a guideline for starting a service year program in your community or at your organization. An effective service year has the potential for substantial impact on three fronts - the host organization’s capacity for achieving its mission, the community in which service is performed, and the individual who completes the service.
The Service Year Exchange only includes positions that are deemed to have the characteristics of a service year position, based on the certification criteria. If your organization is not currently part of AmeriCorps, or if you want to create a new program not recognized by AmeriCorps, your positions will need to be certified. Take a look at the criteria to see if your program qualifies to be part of the exchange.
