The Experience


The FrancisCorps experience is not one of prayer, service, or community at any one given time, but an experience of prayer, service, and community at all times!



The Experience


A Typical Day of a FrancisCorps volunteer will always include four key things: service, community, prayer and a Franciscan sense of fun!

What Alumni Are Saying

I chose FrancisCorps because of its emphasis on the importance of caring for their volunteers and for those they minister to. It was clear through the retreats, communication, and support system set up through FrancisCorps that the volunteers were more than just another warm body. They are viewed as a respected, valuable, and productive part of a team and an irreplaceable part of the community.

FrancisCorps is one of the best experiences of my life! I would wholeheartedly recommend the program to young adults interested in serving God and living the Gospel.

Lauren Chacon – FC 21

 Testimonial
Lauren

It looked like a balance between work and service and community, a way to put faith into action while learning about myself and others. To be radical and live a radical Christian life.

Blake Daly – FC 17

 Testimonial
Blake

I wanted to deepen my understanding of how service to others/ the poor could be a fundamental element of my life and career, and I found that. This led me to pursue a Master of Public Health degree which I now use to serve women and children around the world by helping to improve maternal & newborn health and broader health systems.
