Young Adult Service Corps

Are you 21 to 30 years old? Are you ready for an experience that will transform your life? Do you want to be a part of what God is doing in the world? Do you want to experience diverse cultures, make a spiritual commitment, and reflect on your vocational possibilities? If your answer is "Yes!" then you are ready to work with the Young Adult Service Corps in a one-year assignment. Applicants must have a high degree of maturity and possess a faith commitment, the willingness to be a humble guest, and the ability to be an authentic companion. The Young Adult Service Corps brings young adults into the life of the worldwide Anglican Communion and into the daily work of a local community. At the same time, it brings the gifts and resources of the church into the lives of young adults as they explore their own faith journeys.
