“Young adults serving through ESC come from all over the world and all walks of life. What they have in common is their commitment to making a difference,” said Wendy Johnson, program manager for Episcopal Service Corps. “For ESC, living together in intentional community means that Corps members commit to a year of growing, laughing, crying, playing, and supporting one another—whether doing the dishes, in weekly house meetings, or on retreat.”

Throughout the year, every Corps member works with a team of mentors and leaders dedicated to providing opportunities to dig deep into issues that matter to them. Local programs take care of basic living expenses for each residential community, so Corps members can focus on their transformational opportunities. Every ESC member receives housing and utilities and insurance coverage, as well as stipends for food, living expenses, and transportation.
