Farmers Insurance is part of Employers for National Service - an initiative that connects AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other service year alumni with employers from the private, public and nonprofit sectors. More than 500 employers are now a part of the program, which gives national service alumni additional opportunities to apply their skills in the workplace.
Meg Garlinghouse, a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and the Head of Social Impact at LinkedIn, spoke to service year corps members about the critical skills they will develop during their year of service and why employers value their service year experience.
How national service can support students in low-income schools | Service Year Alliance releases a report on national service and education
The Role of National Service in Improving Elementary and Secondary Education Outcomes in Low-Income Schools, was released on October 2, 2017 at a Capitol Hill Briefing hosted by Service Year Alliance, Voices for National Service, and America’s Promise Alliance. The report, written by Service Year Alliance, takes a unique look at how national service members provide an under-recognized and cost-effective source of human capital to improve student outcomes in low-income schools. The report explores seven roles that national service programs, particularly AmeriCorps, play in supporting student success to help education stakeholders and policymakers better understand how national service is critical to important education reform efforts and reducing educational disparities.
