When you sign up on ServiceYear.org, you’ll have a chance to tell us a little about yourself and view suggested “matches” of service year opportunities that we think might be a good fit for you based on your preferences and experience. 

You can also start exploring listings for service year opportunities on your own right away. 


Once you've created an account, we'll prompt you to add some of your preferences to let us know what types of service year opportunities interest you. This includes:

  • Where you would like to serve (by city, state, or county)
  • What focus areas interest you (e.g. education, environment, health)
  • Your education level
  • Your availability to do a service year (e.g. When can you start serving?)

After you've completed your preferences, we'll provide suggested matches for opportunities that might be a good fit. You can edit your preferences at any time to receive new matches. 


Along with viewing your matches, you can search ServiceYear.org’s directory of listings for service year opportunities.

You can filter your search by focus area, education level, location, and start dates. Start searching now.
