QUAKER VOLUNTARY SERVICE 2015-2016 Applications now being accepted.
Updated 01/01/2015 by
Built on the four core values: Community, Service, Transformation, and the Quaker Way, QVS offers young adults the opportunity to discover their gifts, while helping change the world. It is an experiment at the intersection of transformational spirituality and activism. It is a chance to live your life with compassion and justice, within a community of fellow social change agents, and in conversation with the various expressions of the Quaker Way. We are excited to announce that we are recruiting Volunteers for FOUR houses this year (Atlanta, GA; Portland, OR; Philadelphia, PA; and Boston, MA).

QVS Volunteers work full time in professional positions at local nonprofits, schools, and other social justice agencies that offer support to marginalized individuals and communities. For examples of the service site placement possibilities in our current cities see: Quaker Voluntary Service Placements Website.

Through simple, communal living, Volunteers learn to care for self and others. Volunteers receive housing, all utilities, health insurance, a transportation and grocery allowance and a small living stipend. Volunteers will be supported by and engage with local Quaker communities. Volunteers are not required to be a Quaker to participate in QVS, but they should come prepared to deeply engage in Quaker worship and practice, and be genuinely open to sharing their spiritual journey with others.

For more information and to apply, see the Quaker Voluntary Service Application Page.
