New YAV Site:
What does it mean to be a YAV?
Young Adult Volunteers commit to serving a minimum of one year in the U.S. or Internationally at one of our sites. YAVs have the opportunity to volunteer alongside local partners, engaging in work and conversation around issues that address poverty, reconciliation, and what it means to share the hope of Christ through service. This blog is a chance to stay updated on what is happening in the life of the YAV program, whether that is with our current volunteers, our abundance of alum, the YAV office, or our YAV partners. The conversations and tough issues that we spend countless hours talking about as YAV’s don’t end when the year does; welcome to the conversation! If you have more questions, feel free to email.

Search for New Boston Food Justice YAV Site Coordinator
BOSTON YAV SITE COORDINATOR
Our Board seeks a qualified site coordinator whose combination of knowledge and experience with food justice issues is informed by faith and action. Our ideal candidate
will have supervisory and mentoring experience, community organizing and advocacy background, and academic work in areas related to food justice and sustainable living.
Experience living in a faith community is also preferred.
The position begins August 1 with our 2014-2015 group of YAVs arriving at the end of August. Our program year runs September 1-August 31 and is now in its very successful first year with a program of 4 sites and 4 volunteers. Each site is a partnership between a congregation in the Presbytery of Boston and a food related project or agency in each church’s community. Volunteers work equally with the church and agency.
The position is open until filled but preference will be given to applications received by June 1, 2014.
