University Relationships

A Message from SCA Recruiting

Welcome to SCA!

Each year, SCA Recruiters meet with over 160,000 young people around the US to promote opportunities to serve with SCA. None of this would be possible without our strong relationships with faculty and administrators at colleges and universities. Our joint commitment to provide experiential learning and leadership and professional development to men and women just discovering their life path has provided thousands of young people with the opportunity to serve their country and impact that natural world.

On this page, we’ll highlight where we’ve been and ways that you, as professionals at colleges and universities, can continue and elevate that collaboration for the betterment of the young people we both serve.

We look forward to working with you over the coming year!

Best wishes,

SCA Recruiting Staff
