Become an Employer of National Service and offer employment to national service members.
Employer of National Service Highlight:
Farmers Insurance is part of Employers for National Service - an initiative that connects AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, and other service year alumni with employers from the private, public and nonprofit sectors. More than 500 employers are now a part of the program, which gives national service alumni additional opportunities to apply their skills in the workplace.
Other ways to get involved:

Here are some examples of how companies have rolled up their sleeves to help young people serve:
Cisco invested its resources and expertise to build the Service Year Exchange (SYx), a first-of-its-kind tech platform for young people to find service years and for organizations to find young people to power their organization.
Airbnb is helping to eliminate one of the biggest challenges for young people in choosing to do a service year: relocating. Airbnb is providing temporary housing to service year corps members to make their transition easier. Read more about our partnership and learn how Airbnb is opening doors to service year corps members.
Starbucks is focused on helping opportunity youth (16-24 year olds not in school or work) to enter the workforce. We teamed up to build a city-level demonstration in Chicago for how service years can be a pathway for opportunity youth to gain skills, improve their community, and advance their careers.
Comcast invested $1M in advertisements and helped get the service year message to thousands of televisions and living rooms across America.
