13 Service Opportunities For The Altruistic And Spiritual College Graduate
The Huffington Post | By Antonia Blumberg
Posted: 05/31/2014 8:24 am EDT

Thousands of students will don caps and gowns in May and June to celebrate their college graduations, and the question on many minds is: What's next?

Some of these graduates will plunge straight into the job market despite an underemployment rate for recent grads of 44% as recently as 2012. Others will head to grad school, remaining in the familiar cushion of the academic world for a few more years.

One option that might appeal to grads eager to give back is to join a religious or secular service organization and use that degree toward a good cause. Many service corps offer an immersive experience of giving back to the community, sometimes even with expenses paid and amenities provided.

Here are 13 service opportunities for the altruistic grad:

- Episcopal Service Corps

- Baha'i Youth Service Corps

- AVODAH Jewish Service Corps

- JDC's Jewish Service Corps

- Jesuit Volunteer Corps

- Sikh Coalition Fellowships

- Lutheran Volunteer Corps

- Mercy Volunteer Corps

- Peace Corps

- AmeriCorps

- Foundation Beyond Belief's Pathfinders Project

- Green Corps

- Ismaili Global Encounters

Although they don't run a specific service corps program for adults, the Ismaili community is known for its commitment to community service and volunteering ( ). Aga Khan Academy in Mombasa runs an international service program for high schoolers called Global Encounters ( ). Students spend several weeks at the academy receiving training in leadership and global citizenship.

Adults interested in serving with the Ismaili community may participate in volunteer days through CIVIC: Challenging Ismaili Volunteers ( ) in Communities.
