March 7-12 Events: NYC National Service Leadership Council – Recruitment Fair & Information Session

The NYC National Service Leadership Council proudly presents the first NYC National Service Recruitment Fair and Info Session series for the citywide recruitment campaign of service year members. Sponsored by JetBlue, New York’s Hometown Airline®, these events provide time for any and all New Yorkers to learn about national service and service year programs in our City.

As you may know, a service year is a 10-12 month transformative experience that enables individuals to address local, pressing issues through a full-time or part-time service commitment that includes a small living allowance. We have thousands of young professionals serving in NYC today, but we hope to grow and expand in the coming years. The NYC National Service Recruitment Fairs and Info Sessions will bring the service year opportunity directly to the public and we are hope that you will help us spread the word!
