Surge Capability


National Language Service Corps

The National Language Service Corps (NLSC) is a readily available group of language volunteers who provide foreign language services to U.S. federal agencies.  Whether there is a national need, a regional emergency, or a national security requirement, the NLSC can assist a U.S. federal agency in meeting surge foreign language needs with readily available U.S. citizens with high level language skills.

NLSC offers multilingual citizens the opportunity to volunteer their language skills and be a bridge to their language communities.  NLSC members have the opportunity and privilege to help their country, their neighbors, and their fellow citizens by participating in national efforts when their expertise can truly make a difference.
