Young Adult Service Corps -- Worldwide

The Young Adult Service Corps (YASC) offers exciting opportunities to serve, learn, and share while spending a year living and working with communities around the world.

“From working as ship-visiting chaplains with the Mission to Seafarers in Hong Kong and New Zealand to teaching in church-run primary and secondary schools in Costa Rica and Tanzania or supporting the transformation of sustainable development work in the Philippines, YASC volunteers build relationships with communities around the Anglican Communion and develop global perspectives on life and faith that stay with them for a lifetime,” said Elizabeth Boe, Episcopal Church Mission Personnel Officer. “We see this ministry as a way to support young adults in leadership development as they explore their faith in new ways, engage with diverse viewpoints, and offer their gifts and skills in new contexts.”

Open to Episcopalians ages 21-30, applications are now available for 2019-2020 placements with the Young Adult Service Corps, the international missionary program of the Episcopal Church. YASC volunteers are currently serving throughout the worldwide Anglican Communion, working alongside partners in administration, agriculture, communication, development, and education. They are serving with ministries in Costa Rica, England, Hong Kong, New Zealand, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Tanzania. Potential placements for 2019-2020 include (but are not limited to) Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, England, Honduras, Hong Kong, Panama, the Philippines, South Africa, Taiwan, and Tanzania.
