50 Weeks of L’Arche Erie – Weeks 17 & 18

This week we are going to spend our 50 weeks of L’Arche talking about our new cohort – L’Arche GAP.

L’Arche GAP (Growth; Adventure; Possibility) is a unique paid gap year experience for students interested in living in community with adults with and without intellectual disabilities.

Those accepted into the cohort will attend a 3-day welcome retreat to learn about L’Arche values before heading their respective L’Arche placements across the United States, including Atlanta, Jacksonville, Boston North, St. Louis, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Erie, and Mobile.

The cohort will meet monthly for a day of reflection and sharing, and each member will have the opportunity to travel to experience life in another L’Arche community. The program runs from August 2022-July 2023, and applications are due on April 15, 2022. Please contact Amy at to learn more about this exciting post-grad opportunity, and follow us on Instagram for up-to-date information (@larchegap)!
