Becoming a USG member starts by joining our USG Academy! Apply for the USG Academy by selecting an upcoming start date below and following the steps in the application process.

Each of our USG members starts their journey by completing an 8-week virtual training course that we refer to as the USG Academy.

At the end of your 8-week training course, you are invited to join other USG members at an all-expense paid Impact Weekend! 


Impact weekends occur in different cities across the country and can be selected based on timing and availability.
