What is Quarantation, you ask?
It’s quarantine+orientation, our program directors’ innovative response to COVID-19 protocols and best practices that incorporates the necessary 1-2 weeks of quarantine while also covering typical orientation tasks.
Responding to local conditions, a number of ESC’s 14 network programs quarantined in their house while others went off-site to a nearby camp or conference center where Corps members could remain physically distant during a quarantine period and gather safely outside, as appropriate.
Now, in the face of what seemed like astronomical odds, every ESC program has now successfully deployed a full Corps of volunteers for the 2020-2021 #ServiceYear.
We are so proud of all the work our program directors and their staff/volunteers put into creating a safe environment for incoming Corps. And we are especially proud of the Corps members who volunteered for a Service Year during this time when our communities need them most.
You can have a look at some of the faces and places of Quarantation 2020 below.
And believe it or not, we have already started recruiting for the 2021-2022 program year.
