Kaplan teamed up with Smile Train—the nonprofit international charity that brings free corrective surgery to children born with cleft lip and palate—and sent four pre-health students on an educational trip to Guatemala. These future doctors, dentists, and healthcare providers not only spent valuable time with the children and their families, but they learned about Smile Train’s sustainability model, which helps local doctors in developing countries provide the care needed within their own communities.

Check out Bhumika's story on her journey to becoming a dentist and her experience in Guatemala.

Announcing Employers of National Service

“If you’re an employer who wants to hire talented, dedicated, patriotic, skilled, tireless, energetic workers, look to AmeriCorps, look to the Peace Corps… Citizens who perform national service are special.  You want them on your team.” 
– President Obama

National service develops essential skills that make AmeriCorps alumni assets for organizations and companies seeking high-quality employees. National service alumni are strong leaders who are motivated, flexible, innovative, and outcome-oriented. They learn quickly and work well on diverse teams. They know how to mobilize others to tackle some of the most pressing challenges facing our nation and our world.

Now, dozens of companies have committed to being Employers of National Service.  Click here to learn more about the initiative and view of full list of employers.
