A Year or a Career

Hundreds of people come to L’Arche communities to learn, to grow, and to have an extraordinary life-changing experience. Most make an initial commitment of one year.  Many Assistants will choose to stay  at L’Arche for several years, and some for their entire career. 

In your first year at L’Arche, you will develop friendships, learn the importance of community, develop skills to support core members, and grow as a leader and as a person.
Through living and working together in our communities, L’Arche engages Assistants to build and shape a more hopeful and human society.
