Are there age requirements?

Unless it's specifically noted, most positions do not have a maximum age. No matter your age, a service year gives you the chance to transform your life, develop leadership and professional skills, make an impact on the lives of others, and become the active citizen and leader our nation needs.

Plenty of service year programs are looking to power their organization with people who have had more career experience. We highly encourage you to search for service year opportunities that interest you and apply. If you are a good fit for the organization and service year opportunity, the organization will let you know. 

Listings do indicate if the organization has any age requirements for specific service year opportunities, and you will likely need to be out of high school to be eligible. 

If you are 55 or older, you can also look into Senior Corps opportunities
