SERVICE LEADERSHIP CORPS

Program Overview

Join the Service Leadership Corps and become part of a growing movement of veterans who are applying their expertise and continued service as community-based leaders.

Upon completion, corps members will be equipped to be an effective member of a platoon leadership team focused on making impact in under-resourced communities.

The Service Leadership Corps (SLC) is an opportunity for veterans to expand their network and maximize their skills to drive change efforts specific to their local communities. We offer a virtual or in-person track for completion and each program includes progressive virtual training to enhance veteran knowledge, connection and leadership skills. Corps members work individually and in small groups, learning about the challenges our country is facing in communities nationwide, and how to activate local veterans and community members to collectively drive positive change through service in their local platoons.

Choose the Track that Works For You

We offer the SLC program in virtual or in-person tracks in order to accommodate varying needs and learning styles. Our in-person program is for veterans looking to connect with a larger network through four in-person meetings and a rigorous six-month curriculum, or who are interested in launching service platoons in cities that do not currently have TMC Operations. The virtual SLC track is ideal for those who need the flexibility and convenience of an online format, but still want the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively lead service platoons and have an impact in under-resourced communities.
