Once you’ve created a personal account, you’ll be able to enroll your organization. Before taking this step, there are two items to double check:
1. See if your organization is already enrolled:
We’ll first prompt you to check if your organization has already been enrolled. If it has, you can request access to join your organization, and an existing admin on that account will be able to review your request for approval.
2. Reference your eligibility to join as a host organization:
Additionally, prior to enrolling your organization, please check your eligibility to join as a host organization. Our team is happy to talk through any questions you have on eligibility.
Enrolling a new organization:
When you are ready to enroll a new organization, you can head to the "Enroll Your Organization" page. On this page, you'll enter your organization name (which should be entered as you want it to appear on your organization profile), select your legal form, provide your EIN, and create a Service Year URL (i.e. what you will want your public profile URL to be on ServiceYear.org).
Once you’ve completed enrolling your organization, you’ll have access to your organization dashboard. This will be your team’s main access point to add info and get to key places on ServiceYear.org.
Determining how to enroll your organization:
If your organization sponsors multiple service year programs, you can determine if it makes sense to enroll as one organization, or as multiple. In some instances, it might make sense to utilize separate accounts, such as if your programs use separate branding, websites, and recruitment practices.
- Create a shared account for your organization’s programs. If you take this approach, you would enroll the organization, add any staff who will be managing the account as administrators, create a general organization profile, and add positions for each program. On ServiceYear.org, you can group positions together under a program, which would display them in one section on the profile, and would give you a chance to add a brief description of each program's work.
- You also have the option create separate accounts for each of the AmeriCorps programs. This would mean having a completely separate profile for each program, and having each account managed by that program's staff. If you want to take this option, you could do so by registering your organization under a fiscal agent (using the organization's EIN), and then use your program as the organization name. This option might make sense if you did not want to have multiple programs managing the same account. Please note that if you take this option, each program will be counted as a separate account for membership purposes.
