Commitment to Action

Putting Service to Work

Commitment by

Edelman

In 2011, Edelman together with the service corps community, represented by The Corps Network, the National Association of Workforce Boards (NAWB), Monster.com and a host of other corporations and government agencies, committed to facilitating and managing a new service-to-work coalition that will place 25,000 service corps graduates in high-quality jobs over the next five years. Advancing out of discussions at CGI America, the coalition will match service corps graduates with employers seeking their skills through an online platform developed by Monster.com. Edelman will develop a communications plan to shift the business community's perceptions of service corps from simply civic engagement to key workforce development programs.
