About YASC

The Episcopal Church's Young Adult Service Corps places 21 to 30 year olds as missionaries around the world for one year, through partnerships with the Global Anglican Communion. Based on previous knowledge, skills, and interests, YASCers are placed in relevant and meaningful service positions within a Diocese to assist in any way they are needed. 

The goal is to build relationships, contribute practical skills, gain and facilitate cross-cultural understanding, and live into our baptismal covenants. While each placement is unique, all provide the opportunity to fulfill one or more of the five marks of mission:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptise and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and pursue peace and reconciliation
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth
To learn more, you can watch the video below and visit the website, where you will find additional videos and FAQs. You can also find the blogs of other current YASCers by visiting the links on the right hand side of my blog home page.
