Find out how these alums turned their year of service into fulfilling careers.
“VSC allowed me to take the time to reflect on myself and understand my skills, purpose, and talents. It allowed me to grow in humility and in my faith with God. It gave me a clearer purpose in life and a better understanding on the impact I can make in others’ lives. More importantly, it has given me the confidence I needed to be my whole, true self and in learning I can do anything I set my mind to.”
Ada Lee, 2017-2018
