blue-green-orange-logoThe application period for the Young Adult Volunteer program, a faith-based year of service for young people ages 19-30, is now open! We encourage you to pass along this information to young adults and youth and campus ministry leaders who may be interested. 

The Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program is a faith-based year of service in 22 sites around the world and in the United States. YAVs accompany local agencies working to address root causes of poverty and reconciliation while exploring the meaning and motivation of their faith in community with peers and mentors. 

Program benefits include a regular stipend, housing, transportation and student-loan repayment options throughout the duration of the service year. For more info, visit the FAQ tab at the top of the YAV homepage. Also, following @yavprogram on social media is a great resource.
