To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Young Adult Service Corps

The Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) is a ministry for Episcopalians 21 to 30 years old who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living, working and praying with brothers and sisters around the Anglican Communion. For many young Episcopalians, a year of international service provides a global perspective on life and faith that helps them find ways to live more fully into the Baptismal Covenant to “seek and serve Christ in all persons.” YASC volunteers are placed in an environment with both language and cultural differences and need to rely on others for support and guidance, which is a valuable lesson for anyone seeking to approach everyday challenges from a different perspective. This cross-cultural experience enriches and encourages new ways of thinking, which in today’s multi-ethnic communities, can help nurture a deeper understanding of self and one another. This will strengthen new leaders to reach across ethnic divides. YASC also strengthens lay and ordained leadership within the church by offering a useful tool for those in vocational discernment and providing a wider perspective on our global Anglican community.
