The Road Episcopal Service Corps is a paid urban fellowship year for young adults (21-32) who want to put their faith into action, make the connection between faith and social change, and work alongside others in community. Road Fellows serve 32 hours a week with agencies and people committed to social justice, advocacy, and compassionate care for vulnerable people. Fellows live together in an intentional spiritual community at Emmaus House. The Road Fellows also engage a curriculum of social justice education, spiritual and theological reflection, vocational discernment, and leadership development. The Road equips fellows with practical skills and hands-on experience for lives of active hope and leadership.
The Road seeks Fellows who bring passion, energy, and imagination to the collaborative endeavor of building more just and liberating communities and are ready for challenging, creative, and impactful work. The Road welcomes fellows from all walks of life and many faith perspectives, believing the gift of differences enriches a year of inner and outer growth.
The fellowship year begins August 24, 2016 and ends in mid-July 2017. The Road provides a stipend to cover costs of food, transportation, and personal expenses; housing and utilities; and health insurance.
