Emily Stevens begins a year as a Young Adult Volunteer
Starting in August, Emily is about to embark on a year of service through the Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program, funded through the Presbyterian Church (USA). YAV serves to help comunities in need around the country and the world. For young people like Emily, the YAV program serves as a year of reflection for each individual to learn more about themselves, mentally and spiritually, and how they wish to integrate themselves in the world during this time of transition in their life. As her year progresses, she will begin blogging her experiences at www.emilyinashevilleyav.tumblr.com
