What is YASC?
YASC stands for the Young Adult Service Corps. It is a program run through the Mission Personnel Office of the United States Episcopal Church. Every year, YASC sends 10-20 young adults all over the world to complete a variety of assignments, like teaching English, working with microfinance organizations, supporting the communications for a local outreach charity, or working in a healthcare setting. For more information, please see episcopalchruch.org/yasc
