About Episcopal Service Corps

Episcopal Service Corps supports adults ages 21-32 to respond to community needs and participate in social transformation through service, advocacy and community engagement. Our communities are marked by young adults accompanying others in solidarity, promoting justice in community, and deepening spiritual awareness, vocational discernment, and professional development, while living in intentional community. Our programs are diverse and span the country from LA to Boston.

ESC corps members work in a wide variety of settings including education, homelessness and affordable housing, the arts, health care, disaster response, parish ministry, environmental justice, legal services, community organizing, LGBTQ rights, prison and formerly incarcerated services, immigrant and refugee services, violence prevention and intervention, and food justice. Each program offers different placements depending on the needs and opportunities in the local community.

Everyone serving through ESC commits to a year of volunteer local service, as well as a household Rule of Life, regular spiritual direction, discernment and community practices. In return for volunteering, Corps members receive housing, health insurance, and small stipends to cover living expenses, transportation and food.

ESC is a network of locally incorporated programs coordinated through The Episcopal Church.
