Community Need Addressed
Service year opportunities help address a wide range of community needs across the country. From fighting poverty to working with kids to responding to natural disasters — a service year is a meaningful and fulfilling way to tackle the most pressing challenges facing our nation while transforming your own life.
At the same time, awareness for a paid year of service is low and host organizations are fighting to make their voice heard. Promoting service year opportunities can also be a challenge for the organizations hosting them. This position will raise awareness for service years and help expand capacity for organizations in improving their marketing outreach to promote service year opportunities.
Service year organizations will report an increase in awareness and ultimately in applications for their open positions that are available on ServiceYear.org.
