Service Year Exchange

Background

A Better You. A Greater Us.

Service Year Exchange is a platform which serves as a marketplace to connect motivated young people looking to develop real-world skills with non-profit organizations offering hands-on service opportunities. Our client, Service Year Alliance, approached ISL with a big idea — make a service year a common expectation and opportunity for all young Americans.

Complete with organization and corps member profiles, robust search capabilities, and custom dashboard interfaces, our interdisciplinary team continues to build new features and optimize the platform in partnership with our hands-on client team. The platform currently features and serves over 30,000 service opportunities, 1,000 corps members, and hundreds of non-profit organizations across the country. ISL has expanded the platform’s recruitment efforts to social and targeted paid media strategy, which has resulted in up to a 60% increase in daily user registrations.
