Recruitment Toolkit

We are proud to provide the service year field with the resources and tools it needs to recruit top talent to fill their service year opportunities on

The following is the official Service Year Recruitment Toolkit — a collection of best practices, tools, guidelines, and suggestions that Service Year Alliance has created with the help of numerous partners across the service year community. We encourage every program on to utilize this toolkit to boost and support their service year recruitment efforts.
