This week the nation commemorates the contribution of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and his challenge for all of us to serve. Dr. King did not serve for just one day a year… his whole life was one of service to others. How about you? Have you thought of doing a year of service after graduation?
Although we are certainly interested in recruiting volunteers to the FrancisCorps experience, our ultimate goal is to help young-adults find the right experience for you. It’s really important that this works because this year of service has the potential to truly transform your life and if the experience is not right for you, you can miss out on so much! So, even if you’re not interested in FrancisCorps you might want to talk to us to see how we can help you find the right fit for you. A.J. LaPoint, our Director, did a year of service with FrancisCorps and has experience in campus ministry. Friar Rick, our Chaplain, is a Franciscan friar-priest with over 30 years of experience and a pastoral counselor. Between the two of them you can be assured of some good, sound advice. We have also put together a page especially for helping you decide. Visit our Interest to Action page for help on picking out what programs to research and deciding between programs! Here at FrancisCorps, our priority deadline is fast approaching. If you get all your application materials submitted by February 1st your application will be considered during our first round of application reviews!
So as you consider all your options and opportunities for next year and you think about all the service you have done and the service you’d like to do, consider spending a year in service to others. Feel free to contact us for advice or if you have any questions. We are here to help! AJ LaPoint at firstname.lastname@example.org, Friar Rick at email@example.com, or call us at (315) 426-0481
