What We Do
Provide Volunteer Support to the U.S. Government
USCC enables Americans to lend their expertise to the US Government on a part-time, remote, and volunteer basis. Working as individuals or in groups, our volunteers provide critical skills and perspectives to mid-career government officials regarding priority policy issues such as competition with China in Southeast Asia, and 3D printing to enhance the resilience of America’s supply chains.
Provide Trusted Human Capital with ServicePlace
Our ServicePlace allows experts and professionals to serve vulnerable populations in times of need. During COVID-19, ServicePlace connected available healthcare professionals to health facilities needing additional personnel. ServicePlace’s first iteration is a searchable online database of licensed and vetted healthcare professionals available to a small group of health facilities. Over time, ServicePlace will expand to cover additional personnel types critical to a crisis response (e.g., educators, supply chain experts, cybersecurity professionals, etc.).
