Ford Community Corps - Deadline Extended through May 14

You not only know we can do better, you are in the trenches daily living the change you and your neighbors identify as key to living together in your community. The Ford Community Corps shares your common interests and brings academic institutions with students and nonprofit groups together to bring ideas into reality.

First, nonprofit groups identify and state their needs for student service projects which incorporate practical skills and knowledge into day-to-day settings.

Secondly, with the network of colleges and universities, Ford Community Corps brings talented students together with the nonprofit organizations seeking solutions. Students participating in the Ford Community Corps utilize skills they have developed on campus in a real-world environment. They gain valuable insight in career options and are exposed to the significant roles and responsibilities of corporations in civic life. They also see firsthand the Ford Motor Company commitment to sustainable communities and how their own participation is making a difference in the community.

The nonprofit lead should complete the application and send to by 5 p.m. EST May, 14.
