ServiceCorps Helps College Grads Do Good, and Do Well

September 13, 2016 § Leave a comment

ServiceCorps, a new program launched in Boston and New York City, allows corporate bound college graduates to delay their for-profit careers to work full time in the social sector. This means that non-profits like Commonwealth Care Alliance (CCA) have been able to hire and work alongside top-quality college graduates.

Many entry-level employees today “want a work environment that’s meaningful and motivating, and they want to have impact on a larger community,” said Raymond McGuire, Citi’s global head of corporate and investment banking, “and ServiceCorps allows them to do just that.”

After graduation, Becky Andrews was offered a financial management position at General Electric when they offered her the option to defer her start date for a year and work at a non-profit.

“I still wanted the job, but I also really wanted to do a volunteer or nonprofit experience so I could develop different skills before I went to GE,” explained Andrews.

Becky now works here at CCA, a Boston health care organization for low-income patients.

At CCA, she added, “they’ve given me so many responsibilities, and it’s helping me learn more about myself and my strengths and weaknesses.”
