Service Is A Way Of Life

The Krista Foundation equips young adults with skills to transform service experiences into lives of service leadership.

Transitioning from a service year can be a disorienting experience. Through mentoring, a colleague community and re-integration services, the Krista Foundation helps young adults fully understand and employ the learnings from their service experience.

Our colleagues touch lives through hands-on volunteer service with organizations such as Peace Corps, AmeriCorps or Jesuit Volunteer Corps.

Our unique peer-mentoring model develops young Christian leaders during their pivotal 20-something years.

Our colleagues' insightful leadership positively shapes our global and local communities.
