Quaker Voluntary Service is an experiment at the intersection of transformational spirituality and activism, a year-long Fellowship program for young adults.
We partner with community based non-profit organizations in our service cities which cover a wide range of social and environmental issues. Our Fellows increase the capacity of organizations to do work they might not otherwise be able to do.
We partner with Quaker meetings and churches and are supported by local Friends in Atlanta, Boston, Portland and Philadelphia. QVS Fellows live in intentional community, sharing day to day life and supporting each other throughout the year. Fellows receive support from QVS staff and spiritual nurturers.
We are part of a long history and tradition of Quaker service, and we see ourselves as a contemporary expression of that much older stream. After many years of consultation and discernment, the first QVS house opened in Atlanta in 2012 and we have been growing ever since.
We invite young adults to apply to become a QVS Fellow. An ideal applicant brings an openness to working with diverse community members, a willingness to explore questions of faith and spirituality, and an ability to function well in a professional setting. Application Deadline is 15 March 2019
