“In the Next Generation Service Corps we develop character driven, adaptive leaders charged with driving positive impact both locally and globally. NGSC leaders are armed with the courage to cross sectors, connect networks and ignite action for the greater good.”
Brett Hunt, Executive Director, Public Service Academy
The world is more complex and interconnected than it has ever been. Hunger, homelessness, global warming, education inequality, extremism; not one of these challenges will be solved by a single government, nonprofit or corporation. These challenges will be solved by character-driven leaders armed with a social mission and the leadership skills to bring diverse groups together towards a common goal.
The NGSC is a four-year leadership development program (with a two-year transfer track) where students study their chosen major, engage in practical elements of leadership, learn cross-sector collaboration and take internships each summer working on real issues in the public, private and nonprofit sectors all while pursuing their own chosen social mission.
NGSC students train directly with ROTC cadets and midshipmen in leadership exercises and field training exercises. This is a recognition that civilian service and military service are really just two sides of the same coin; both make us stronger as a nation.
The NGSC is made up Corps Members from 65 different majors, every ASU campus, 29 different states and internationally. Corps Members lead throughout the program in Mission Teams all while taking part in other clubs including Undergraduate Student Government, intramural sports, greek life, Barrett the Honors College and clubs too numerous to name.
