Description

Quaker Voluntary Service is a year-long Fellowship program in which young
adults between the ages 21-30 build intentional community, work full time at social service and
social change agencies, and explore themes of spiritual and personal growth with local Quakers.
An ideal QVS Fellow is committed to working with diverse community members, brings a
willingness to explore and practice spirituality, and is prepared to work in a professional setting.
QVS Fellows should be ready to ask challenging questions of themselves and each other about
how to live simply, with integrity and justice, while doing meaningful and mutually empowering
service.

The 9.5-month program runs from the end of August to mid-June each year.
