I'm from Lago Vista, Texas. I just graduated from Schreiner University in May with my degree in Music. I was applying for Grad school and something felt wrong, so I went to my campus minister to try and figure out the next step. Ten minutes after I left her office she got a call from a recruiter from a seminary who wanted to meet anyone even remotely interested in Seminary. The recruiter suggested I look into YAV and I fell in love with the program!
I am placed in San Antonio and will be working a double placement with the Inman Center and House of Teens. The Inman Center is a child care facility that is a direct feed from the original projects in San Antonio and House of Teens is a program run out of Divine Redeemer Presbyterian Church for middle and high school students.
The Young Adult Volunteer program is a year-long service program for young adults between ages 19 and 30. Read more about the YAV program here
