ServiceWorks – powered by the AmeriCorps, the Citi Foundation and Points of Light – is a groundbreaking, national program that uses volunteer service as a strategy to help 25,000 low-income youth and young adults develop the skills they need to prepare for college and careers.

The program, which will deploy 225 AmeriCorps members over three years, will engage young adults, age 16-24, in service and build a large-scale volunteer response to the crisis of low college and career attainment. The young people will receive training in critical 21st century leadership and workplace skills, the chance to build their networks and connections to their communities, and the opportunity to use their new skills by participating in and leading volunteer service projects.

Thousands of professionals – including Citi employees – will participate as volunteer mentors and trainers. ServiceWorks, the nation’s largest corporate-sponsored AmeriCorps VISTA program, supports President Obama’s call to create new public-private partnerships that use national service to help solve our nation’s most pressing challenges.
