Urban Servant Corps (USC) is a one-year Lutheran volunteer program located in Denver, Colorado’s inner-city. While working for social justice at various local nonprofit organizations addressing the basic human concerns of low-income and at-risk populations, volunteers commit to living in intentional community with eight to ten other volunteers in a home located near their placement agencies. This household becomes the volunteer’s support system—a group that does life, explores their spirituality, and lives simply together.
Applications are accepted until all the positions are filled. USC typically begins receiving applications in January and February. Once the application is received, USC staff will contact you for an interview. If you are accepted, you will be put in touch with a particular placement agency to discuss the volunteer job to see if it is a good fit. A placement is not final until both parties agree. The volunteer year lasts from the last Sunday in August until the first Friday in the following August. You do not need to be Lutheran to apply.
