The Episcopal Church offers untold opportunities for young adults to provide service and share their expertise worldwide through the Young Adult Service Corps.
Commonly known as YASC, applications are now being accepted for the Young Adult Service Corps from young adults between the ages of 21-30.
“YASC provides the opportunity to serve God in locations throughout the Anglican Communion,” noted the Rev. David Copley, Mission Personnel Officer. “YASC brings young adults into the life of the worldwide Anglican Communion and into the daily work of a local community.”
Current YASC members are living in Japan, El Salvador, Mexico, Southern Africa, Hong Kong, and Tanzania. Read about their experiences on their blogs: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/mission/109460_110093_ENG_HTM.htm
Possible placements for 2012 include Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Papua New Guinea.
Applicants must have a high degree of maturity and possess a faith commitment and “the willingness to be a humble guest, and the ability to be an authentic companion,” Copley added.
Applications and other information is located here: www.episcopalchurch.org/yasc Application deadline for 2012 placements is January 9, 2012.
