The Kentucky Service Corps (KSC) is a statewide effort to meet unmet community needs by engaging Kentucky college students and citizens in service activities in schools, nonprofits, and government agencies. Over 1000 members (305 Member Service Years - MSYs) on at least 14 campuses will join forces with social service agencies to provide needed services to over 20,000 citizens in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Members will help veterans and people with disabilities, lead support groups for people overcoming addictions, or teach or mentor K-12 students, among many projects. Members will engage in an experience that will foster a lifelong ethic of civic responsibility.
