Episcopal Service Corps

Organization Description: 

The Episcopal Service Corps is a network of Episcopal service internships across the United States dedicated to forming young leaders.

ESC helps young adults discern the inner "voice" that is calling them to their life's work, and to develop the skills to listen and respond through a life of service.

ESC programs provide opportunities for young adults of various backgrounds to: work for social justice, deepen spiritual awareness and discern vocation, develop leadership skills in the paradigm of servant leadership, live a simple, sustainable lifestyle. Programs vary but all are based in the Episcopal Church.
