The Julian Year is the ESC program in Chicago, IL, offering young adults the time and the space to live by faith and work for justice in the city of Chicago.Inspired by the 14th-century mystic Julian of Norwich who lived in a small dwelling attached to a church, The Julian Year can provide some "breathing room" as you discover how your life will shape your world.Julians work 32 hours each week in community service or advocacy organizations. We spend one day per week developing the leadership skills, spiritual depth, and supportive relationships that make the Julians courageous and compassionate agents of change. Participantslearn how to organize power for justice. We examine the systemic abuses of power that aggravate homelessness, violence, hunger, and racial injustice in Chicago. Julians also practice the tools and habits of public life alongside the leaders of PACT, a Chicago-wide organization led by and for young adults.
