Service Year Alliance would like to congratulate the winners our 2017 Best Practices Competition. Throughout the summer, we ran a competition in search of the best of the best in the service year field. Service Year Alliance is grateful for all the organizations that submitted their practices, however the following organizations’ practices rose to the top.
We will work with these programs to turn their practices into templates for other programs to use and learn from — keep your eye out for the monthly Service Year Connector newsletter as these resources become available in the coming months. Congratulations again to the winners!
