YAGM and Urban Servant Corps

Today representatives from two organizations which offer year-long service experiences will be tabling in Christensen Center from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm (except during chapel time).

Mae Helen Jackson is Young Adult Outreach and Placement Manager for Young Adult Ministries with the ELCA. She is in charge of recruitment for the Young Adults in Global Mission (YAGM) program as well as other Young Adult Ministries programs within the larger church expression. The ELCA Young Adults in Global Mission program invites ELCA young adults ages 21-29 into a transformative, year-long journey in international service. As they offer themselves in service, ELCA young adults are shaped by the witness of our global neighbors. They share in the journeys of companion churches and organizations in one of ten countries around the world.

Also tabling is Ciara Kowalcyzk from Urban Servant Corps. Ciara will share about her experience as a full time volunteer at GrowHaus, a nonprofit indoor farm in North Denver dedicated to food production, food education, food distribution, and economic opportunity in chapel today. During her year of service, Ciara Kowalczyk lived in intentional community with others who were serving people experiencing homelessness, teaching at a school for pregnant and parenting teens, offering nutritional food access and other organizations committed to social justice and racial equity.
