The UCC’s Young Adult Service Communities are unique opportunities to live in intentional community with others who share commitments of service and social justice. The YASC program gives young adults a chance to reflect on faith questions and network with members of other volunteer communities in the United States.
There are four main components to the YASC program:
- Intentional Community Living: Interns live in intentional community with each other – sharing time, space, traditions, commitments, and reflection. Interns development relationships with their host congregation, local community, and YASC groups in other locations.
- Congregational Service: Experience the integration of congregational life and mission/service/justice advocacy. Develop servant leadership skills.
- Hands-On Justice Advocacy/Service Opportunities: Experience the gifts and share your passions and skills with vulnerable or excluded people.
- Faith Conversations: Reflect on your experience and explore a vocabulary of faith that expresses a radical hospitality. Participate in “vocational discernment” and help vision a church engaged in God’s work in the world. Participate in justice Leaders training.
