Vision of the Young Adult Service Communities Network

Young adult leaders transforming communities through the faith-inspired pursuit of justice, collaborative action and intentional living.

"I'd almost given up on the church because I didn't see it 'being' the church. This experience has given me reason to believe."  - Melanie, former YASC intern

Learn More About Serving 

Young Adult Service Communities are unique opportunities for you to live in intentional community with others who share your commitment to service and social justice. Together, you will find the space to reflect on questions of meaning and to network for change.

Service and Justice Internships

The YASC network gives you the opportunity to grow professionally and change the world through intern placements with local nonprofit agencies, which are dedicated to justice advocacy and collaborative action.

Congregational Service


Your placement will also allow you the opportunity to grow spiritually as you serve in a leadership position at a United Church of Christ congregation. Through this work you can see the convergence of church and world.

Conscientious Community

Finally, YASC provides you a space to grow personally by living in community with other young leaders, exploring together your direction, calling and future action in the world.
