Our Call to Serve network, which is the only national system that collaborates with both federal agencies and hundreds of institutions of higher education, works to promote federal service and recruit the next generation of public servants. 

Inspiring a career in public service can often be traced back to career development in a higher education setting- an advising session, info session, internship program. Colleges and universities play a critical role in inspiring and preparing the next generation to serve. 

The Partnership supports colleges and universities by connecting students and alumni with federal jobs and internships through:  

  • Training sessions designed to provide knowledge and tools needed to educate students and job seekers about government opportunities and build relationships with federal agencies.  
  • Access to Go Government resources.
  • Campus visits through our Public Service Roadshow.



The Call to Serve Network is now offering membership, including Federal Advisor Certificate Program enrollment! Click here to learn more about becoming a member.

    • Program dates: September 30 – November 27
