The National Service to Employment Project (NextSTEP) conducts research, provides technical assistance, and creates demonstration projects focusing on people with disabilities in volunteer and community-service roles. NextSTEP promotes service as a way to contribute to the community, gain valuable skills, explore career paths, and develop social networks that can lead to meaningful employment.
National service can provide individuals with the opportunity to prepare for meaningful employment and post-secondary education while serving their communities. By engaging in national service, service members experience personal growth, professional growth, and growth as a community member.
