ServiceCorps is an innovative, quickly scaling non-profit that was founded on the belief that leadership matters. Our mission is to transform top college graduates into socially conscious leaders. We are scaling to build and mobilize a lifelong community of courageous leaders and to advance the movement for opportunity equity. We are empowering emerging leaders to secure and defer their post-college job offers at leading corporations, and to serve for one year at the finest nonprofit and public organizations. As Fellows transition from their service year in the social sector to their career in the private sector, they possess the spark, tools, and network to make a social impact.
