Safety is a top priority for all service year programs. Whether you are serving in a rural community or a big city, service year programs are committed to ensuring that service year corps members are safe. Every organization that is featured on has agreed to take basic safety measures, which can include conducting criminal history checks, providing safety-related training to service year corps members, and providing service year corps members with a safe and secure service location.

If you have questions or concerns about safety for doing a service year with a specific organization, we recommend reaching out to the organization directly so that you can find out more about the safety measures they take.
