ABOUT

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Congregational Service: Experience the integration of congregational life and mission/service/justice advocacy. Develop servant leadership skills.
  3. Hands-On Justice Advocacy/Service Opportunities: Experience the gifts and share your passions and skills with vulnerable or excluded people.
  4. 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.
