“True community is based on equality, mutuality and reciprocity. It affirms the richness of individual diversity as well as the common human ties that bind us together.” ~ Anna Pauline “Pauli” Murray
The Road, a program of Emmaus House, beckons a diverse group of young adults to spend a year in community as companions on a journey of holy adventure and purposeful engagement with people overcoming the barriers of poverty in the city of Atlanta. Fellows will work 32 hours each week in settings committed to reconciliation, justice, advocacy, and service. In addition, fellows will spend 3 hours per week volunteering in one of several Emmaus House programs serving neighborhood children and families, which include after school tutoring, family literacy, parenting classes, and Saturday STE(A)M. One day a week will be devoted to spiritual discernment and reflection as well as developing the skills necessary for service work at their site placements in the Atlanta community and for life beyond the Road.
The Road Fellows
We seek Fellows who can bring their passions, questions, and curiosity to collaborative work and to the endeavor of building more just and liberating communities. Ideally, Fellows at The Road will be from many walks of life who have experienced the world in different ways, allowing the gifts of differences to challenge and enrich a year of inner and outer growth.
Road fellows are young adults who want to explore the connection between faith and social change, commit to community and simplicity, and grow in capacity for compassionate, courageous, and imaginative leadership.
