MCC accepting applications for young adult service opportunities

December 20, 2010


AKRON, Pa. – Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) calls the young, curious, ready and restless to SALT a cross-cultural service experience for Christian young adults from the United States and Canada.
 
Serving and Learning Together (SALT) takes participants beyond Facebook to another country where they meet people face to face, build fascinating lives and add new friends. SALT volunteers live more-with-less, simply and “green” as they do practical service and watch God at work.
 
Assignments range from computer work to child care and church work to medical care. Young adults teach, work in agriculture and advocate for the less fortunate. A complete listing of openings can be found at salt.mcc.org, along with an application and more information about the program.
 
Applications should be submitted by Feb. 15, 2011, to ensure consideration for placement in one-year assignments that begin August 2011. Participants need to be single, 18 to 27 years old, Canadian or U.S. citizens, actively participating in the life of a Christian church and committed to nonviolent peacemaking.
 
SALT is one of MCC’s Global Service Learning programs for young adults. To learn more about MCC’s other short-term programs, visit mcc.org/gsl.
