Urban Servant Corps

Goal of Program

Urban Servant Corps is a faith-based, intentional community of full-time volunteers who seek to live simply while serving and accompanying those most in need at non-profit partner agencies in the heart of Denver. USC volunteers commit to engaging with values of intentional community, service, simplicity and spirituality. During a year of service, members also benefit from professional development, vocational discernment, and leadership opportunities.

Type of Placement

Urban Servant Corps volunteers are placed at a variety of non-profit organizations in the Denver community. These organizations address basic human concerns of low-income and at-risk populations and provide immediate, direct service as well as lasting solutions and long-term social change. USC's partner non-profit organizations provide a wide range of experience for volunteers that suit individual interests: people who are homeless, youth/young adults, women and children, education programs, job training, food and nutrition, health care, housing services, basic needs, etc.
