The U.S. Civilian Corps mission is:
1. To enable more people to serve the Federal Government
2. To overcome critical skill, perspective, and institutional knowledge gaps in the government workforce
We are part of a broader movement to reinvigorate a culture of service in the United States of America.
WELCOME TO THE U.S. CIVILIAN CORPS
A new pathway to public service
The way Americans live and work is changing.
It's time for the way we serve to change as well.
The U.S. Civilian Corps enables professionals to contribute to America's national security on a part-time, remote and volunteer basis.

A Passion for Service
In the summer of 2005, Sammy Semwangu was able to take an unpaid summer internship at the State Department thanks to an international affairs fellowship that provided free housing, courses at Georgetown University, and two U.S. ambassadors as mentors. Inspired by his summer in Washington DC, Sammy signed up to be a peer mentor for the program. Seven years later, he served as a peer mentor to Noah Sheinbaum.
Though their career paths diverged, Noah and Sammy shared a passion for service. They stayed in touch, and in the Fall of 2017, they decided to take a deeper look at how to inspire more Americans to get involved.
Through hundreds of consultations in Washington, DC and beyond, they identified the need for a new pathway to service that takes advantage of how Americans work today.
