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.
