Young Adult Volunteers
Indianapolis is a new site for this PC(USA) program.
IndyYAVs will be a part of the vibrant interfaith community in this large, Midwestern city. Living in community in the city, these volunteers will work with several local and international non-profit agencies that bring together Jews, Muslims, Hindus and Christians to serve God's world.
Indy YAV participants will experience deep engagement and cooperative work with people of diverse religious identities. YAVs will learn to help the community live faithfully with difference. This work will help to broaden understanding of the interfaith and ecumenical landscape of the Indianapolis community and the world.
Indianapolis has transformed from a sleepy Midwestern town to a vibrant, international city. Known as “Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is a city of religious and cultural diversity, where faith groups work together to address issues of reconciliation and poverty.
The annual Festival of Faiths celebrates the city's diversity and spirit of cooperation.
