Note: "We are one of five Young Adult Service Communities affiliated with the national United Church of Christ. You do not need to be Christian or a member of any religious  group to participate in our service year program. In the past we have had people of the Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and Jewish faith participate as well as those with no religious background. The Westmoreland program does not require our interns to work any hours at our church or attend church services. However, for consistency and to share resources, we do use the YASC application. If you want to be considered for the Westmoreland Service Corps and work in the Washington DC area, please indicate that on your application. The link to the Young Adult Service Corps application is below."
