You can do a service year in hundreds of communities across the United States. It’s completely up to you where you choose to apply and serve. Service years can be found in rural, suburban, and urban settings.
You can spend a year tackling issues facing your local community by doing a service year in your own backyard. No one knows the issues facing your hometown better than you and the people you grew up with — a service year is your chance to help solve some of the biggest issues facing your community.
You can also travel to communities across the country. Get out of town and explore new areas of the country. Meet new people from different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities, and see a part of of the country you wouldn’t have a chance to visit otherwise.
