About NSP
National Student Partnerships (NSP) is the nation?s only student-driven volunteer service organization that links Americans in need with critical personal, social, and business resources to help them obtain and maintain regular employment. NSP operates a national network of drop-in resource centers, staffed by student volunteers from area colleges and universities that provide immediate research and problem-solving services to community residents in need of assistance finding sustainable employment, social services, and/or educational opportunities. NSP volunteers are trained to work one-on-one with clients to provide intensive on-site and referral services, thereby connecting individuals to the full range of personal, civic, social, and business opportunities available to them. NSP?s National Office in Washington, DC supports the valiant efforts of the volunteers by providing critical financial, operational, and strategic support both locally and nationally, ultimately enabling the Local Offices to provide the best service possible to our communities.
