ServeNext Launches Field Corps to Advance Service + Social Innovation

ServeNext is launching Field Corps, an initiative to “build local and lasting grassroots networks to advance service, AmeriCorps, and social innovation…as strategies to tackle our most pressing social challenges and strengthen our democracy.”

To launch the program, ServeNext is recruiting 10 part-time organizers to serve 10 hours a week between August and January, from all around the country. Field Corps organizers will receive “extensive training in organizing grassroots campaigns, communication and social media, legislative advocacy, strategic planning and more.” Organizing experience is not required.

ServeNext is looking for “leaders who are passionate about service and social innovation in their communities. The program is designed to accommodate the schedules of working professionals and includes a stipend.”

The program will kick off with an all-expenses-paid training in Washington, D.C. from August 20-22.

The application deadline is June 15th.
