JOHNSON SERVICE CORPS
Johnson Service Corps is a year-long program for young adults ages 21 to 28 to explore justice work, spirituality, intentional community, and personal growth in Chapel Hill and Durham, NC.
A year with JSC is an opportunity to dedicate yourself to justice work and spiritual growth. It is a time to reflect, pray, and discern your unique calling in the world, all within an intentional community and multiple circles of support.
There are four main components of a service year with JSC:
- Justice Work: Corps members serve 32 hours weekly with the non-profit partner where they are matched.
- Spiritual Practice: The JSC community welcomes people of all spiritual traditions and those who are new to exploring spirituality. Core members adopt a daily personal practice and commit to weekly attendance with a spiritual community of their choice.
- Intentional Community Living: Corps members live together in an intentional community of 4-6 people per household. Within the household, the community shares three meals weekly and determines how to share responsibilities for all community efforts.
- Leadership Training: Corps Members grow their character, moral leadership, compassion, and inner strengths. They participate in weekly trainings and workshops on a wide range of topics including, money and values, community and self service, racial equity, and creating connections across lines of difference.
Johnson Service Corps is a 501(c)3 independent non-profit organization, and an affiliate of Episcopal Service Corps, a national network of similar programs around the US.
