As part of the AmeriCorps 20th anniversary celebration at the White House on Friday, President Obama announced Employers of National Service, a new initiative to build a talent pipeline to connect AmeriCorps and Peace Corps alumni with leading employers from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors.
As part of this announcement the White House released a list of charter employers. We ask that you join them and have your organization become an Employer of National Service as well as share information about this initiative with other employers.
Please visit NationalService.gov/Employers for more information and to sign up. Any employer that signs up by December 31, 2014 will be considered a charter member.
Through this initiative, employers will have new access to a dedicated, highly qualified, and mission-oriented pool of potential employees and national service alumni will have additional opportunities to apply their skills in the workplace. The 900,000 Americans who have participated in AmeriCorps since 1994 and the 215,000 who have participated in the Peace Corps are people who are motivated, flexible, innovative, and outcome-oriented.
Become an Employer of National Service and have them on your team! Thanks for your support of national service.
