Young adults (21-30 years old) have an opportunity to transform their own lives while engaging mission and ministry in the Anglican Communion by joining the Young Adult Service Corps. Now, applications are available for 2018-2019 placements in the Young Adult Service Corps, commonly known as YASC.
Currently YASCers are serving throughout the Anglican Communion, working alongside partners in administration, agriculture, communication, development, and education. They are serving in Brazil, Costa Rica, England, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa and Tanzania.
Among possible placements for 2018-2019 include (but not limited to) Brazil, Costa Rica, El Salvador, England, Honduras, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Jerusalem, Mexico, Panama, the Philippines, South Africa, Taiwan, and Tanzania.
“The Young Adult Service Corps offers young adults the opportunity to live out their faith in new ways and different contexts,” commented Elizabeth Boe, Episcopal Church Mission Personnel Officer. “They commit to spending a year learning from and working, living, and praying with other Episcopal and Anglican communities around the world.”
The application for a 2018-2019 placement with additional information and instructions is available here. The application deadline is Friday, January 12, 2018.
The Rev. David Copley, Director of Global Partnerships and Mission Personnel, noted, “YASC builds on the foundation of faith, knowledge, education, and experience that young adults bring with them when they serve and offers opportunities to be challenged and transformed by being fully present in another part of God’s world. Missionary service is first and foremost an act of faith and a way of being Church.”
