Trinity Volunteer Corps

Trinity Volunteer Corps (TVC) offers young adults an experience of living in intentional Christian community while working full-time with social service agencies that serve the poor. TVC provides an opportunity to learn more about poverty and advocacy for the poor. The program also provides an unique multi-cultural experience and understanding of community and social justice and a chance to explore personal growth through spiritual practices and awareness.

The program year at TVC involves weekly gathering for formation and reflection, 3-4 retreats per year, and engagement with Trinity Church, a diverse, cross-cultural congregation with a rich worship experience and outreach ministries.

TVC is an eleven month program that begins in late August and ends in July.
