I know there's a lot going on right now. My name is Kyle and I'm part of the community outreach team here at STEPS (Student Training & Education in Public Service). We're a new organization focused on connecting people with education and career opportunities in public service fields like social work, teaching, psychology, and many more. AmeriCorps vs. Peace Corps: Which One Is for You? We're a small team right now, so we have limited resources. Having links up on your site would give our efforts a huge lift. If you have any questions about STEPS, our experts, or our guides, please feel free to reach out. We feel really strongly that these resources help students and professionals alike, and when people help us share them, it means a lot. Thanks Kyle Smith Community Outreach Specialist
