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.

A multidisciplinary six-month training program, 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.

The experience includes four in-person sessions and a virtual curriculum. Corps members work individually and in small groups, collaborating with local organizations, learning how to activate local veterans and community members to collectively drive positive change through service.

Upon graduation, Corps members will return to their local communities prepared to lead their local service platoons as Platoon Leaders for a year alongside a leadership team dedicated to continued service in under-resourced communities.
