Unlocking Opportunity: Apply Now for the Second Year of Maryland Corps/Service Year Option Program

April 02, 2024

 

Applications are live now for the second year of the first-in-the nation Maryland Corps/Service Year Option Program. The program will begin on September 11, 2024 and run through summer 2025.


Service has been an integral part of Governor Wes Moore's administration. Early in his first term as Governor he created the Maryland Department of Service and Civic Innovation which generated two new streams of service, Service Year Option and Maryland Corps. When Governor Moore announced the Service Year Option program he was quoted in saying, "Whether they're preparing our state for climate change, tutoring our students, or caring for the sick, young people should have the option to perform important service today and build a foundation for our shared future."


What is the Maryland Corps/Service Year option? This is a way to service your community, explore career opportunities and experience professional growth while earning a salary, gaining new skills and finding your talents alongside other Marylanders. Service opportunities will provide direct training, an on-site mentor and relevant resources while earning at least a minimum of $15 an hour while completing your service role. At completion of the program, members will earn a contribution of $6,000 toward tuition costs through a Maryland 529 account or as a cash stipend.
