March Madness for National Service

Posted by Jerry Duchene Saavedra on March 13, 2012

ImageMarch Madness kicks off today with 68 college basketball teams facing each other in an action packed single elimination tournament.  However there is another great team that needs your attention this month: the ServeNext field team.

Two weeks ago we launched the application for the 2012 ServeNext Organizer positions and I’m thrilled to report we’ve already received a ton of interest.  But before we select our Elite Eight, we need your help to ensure we consider all the top prospects the national service community has to offer.

Nominate an all-star today who you think would be a great fit for our team.

In less time than it takes to complete your tournament bracket, you can give us your picks for who you think should lead our local efforts to advance national service in 2012.  If your nominee submits an application, we’ll send you a free ServeNext t-shirt.  And if your nominee gets hired, we will send you a $50 gift card from

The stakes for national service in 2012 are high.  In basketball, if a team gets eliminated in the tournament they can always try again next year.  For us, we are not that lucky.  If AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and the entire Corporation for National and Community Service gets eliminated, like some in Congress keep pushing to do, there is no next year.

Help us ensure that doesn’t happen.  Make a nomination today or visit for more information.

NOTE: 2012 ServeNext Organizers are full-time positions for a six month term from June through December.  Ideal candidates include service supporters in between jobs, individuals completing their term of AmeriCorps or Senior Corps by June 15th, and retired professionals passionate about national service.
