Quaker Voluntary Service: Seeking Organizations to Partner with Us to Host A Fellow

Posted by Quaker Voluntary Service on January 14, 2020

Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS) invites your organization to consider serving as one of the service placements for Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS), a dynamic program providing opportunities for transformative service in peace, justice and community organizing contexts.

QVS is open to young adults interested in the intersection of faith and activism, living in intentional Quaker community, and openly engaging questions of faith and service in the world. QVS Fellows live together in simple intentional community. QVS partners with agencies and organizations that offer direct support to marginalized individuals and communities, and that strive to transform unjust structures. QVS places energetic and committed young people in full time positions in these agencies for 11 months (early September through late July). These QVS Fellows receive housing, a food stipend, access to health insurance, training, and spiritual support from QVS.

This year we have Fellows in Philadelphia serving with Bread & Roses Fund, Pennsylvania Health Access Network, Spark Program, Juntos, Olney Charter School, and the Nationalities Service Center and we are hoping to attract arts and cultural organizations to apply this year.

Information, timeline, and application can be found here – https://www.quakervoluntaryservice.org/information-for-site-placements/.  Our application period closes on February 1, 2020.
