Quaker Voluntary Service was one of nine entities selected to receive the newly formed New England Yearly Meeting Legacy Gift grant. We are so grateful for the support and funding towards our Boston program, thank you!
Excerpt: Quaker Voluntary Service (QVS): a year-long fellowship program for young adults exploring the intersection of Quaker spirituality and justice. Fellows work full-time at local nonprofits, engaging in social justice through a faith perspective, while receiving spiritual nurturing by local Friends. This grant supports the first year of the Boston program, launched September 2015. Friends Meeting at Cambridge is the host meeting, in collaboration with five local monthly meetings. Grant: $10,000
