One of the most rewarding service sites for our FrancisCorps volunteers over the years has been with L’Arche which is a community of people surrounding core members who have developmental disabilities. The love, the friendship and the laughter shared at L’Arche has led so many of our alums to refocus their career goals to include service to the most marginalized of our society. Their experiences have been deeply humanizing.
Recently the founder of L’Arche, Jean Vanier was awarded the prestigious Templeton prize. Find out more about why he got this award and why L’Arche might be just the spot for you to do a year of service.
