Can service be performed at a for-profit organization or company?

Yes, but within not-for-profit parameters. If the service-learning activity is performed with a for-profit organization, it must meet an identified community need and must not involve the organizations profit-making activities. For example, a paid accounting internship at an accounting firm in which the student participated in pro bono audits for nonprofit agencies may qualify, whereas, an internship at a for-profit firm in which the students work is only in the service of the companys profit-making activities would not qualify.
