ELCA Vocational Fellowship for Young Adults

The ELCA Young Adult Vocational Fellowship offers young adults an opportunity to discover their calling while gaining valuable professional experience. In partnership with ELCA affiliated ministries, participants are equipped to explore their faith and vocational aspirations, all while receiving support from a network of peers and experienced ELCA coaches. The program is designed to prepare communities and ministry organizations to welcome new, young, and diverse leaders. Fellows receive competitive compensation and benefits, including access to mental health resources, relocation assistance, coaching, and a small group cohort.
The program has partnered with several sites for the 2023-2024 year, including The Dwelling, All Places Together, National Lutheran Communities & Services, Together Lab, Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp, The Hunger Advocacy Fellow Program, Building Resilient Communities with the ELCA Churchwide Organization, Pine Ridge Reconciliation Center, the Minneapolis Area Synod, and Capital University. This program embodies the ELCA’s commitment to empowering young adults and building a brighter tomorrow.
