IOCC Looking for Teens with Hearts for Service

BALTIMORE, MD – International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) is looking for young adults ready to put their faith into action through Orthodox Service Leadership for Youth, Serv-X-Treme.

IOCC’s Serv-X-Treme conferences this July are a chance for rising high-school seniors to learn and grow, alongside other service-minded Orthodox young adults from across the United States. Participants explore Orthodox ideas of service, learn and worship together, and do hands-on service projects.

“This was truly one of the most valuable things I have done in my life spiritually … this has inspired me to do so much; I am truly thankful for this opportunity,” said one 2020 Serv-X-Treme Alumnus.

Take it from the Serv-X-Treme alumni: the memories made will last forever. Applications due by May 17.
