Elizabeth Clapp '15 begins service through Lutheran Volunteer Corps.
She is one of 104 volunteers who will serve in 13 different cities across the country this year as part of the service-leadership program.
In early August, the volunteers trained and became orientated on multiple topics including anti-racism work, self-care and intercultural communication. They then dispersed to the cities where they will live and serve for a year.
Clapp is serving as the policy and research associate at Voices for Children in Nebraska, which is based in Omaha. She graduated from Concordia with a degree in global studies and political science.
LVC is a national service-leadership program that unites people to work for peace and justice. Volunteers live together in intentional community, practice simple and sustainable living, and serve full-time with social justice organizations.
