Stephen T. Young, Director
Stephen Young grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and lived in Vermont from 1981 – 2016, working as the director of the Vermont Audubon State Office and serving as a youth pastor and assistant pastor of the Church of the Crucified One in Moretown. Prior to those years he worked as a staff member for Congresswoman Margaret Heckler (R-MA), and in 1975 began his career with the National Audubon Society as a staff environmental lobbyist and community organizer in their Washington, DC office. During President Jimmy Carter’s administration Fr. Steve (then Steve) worked alongside his peers from many different environmental organizations to pass the Alaska Lands Bill in Congress.
Steve has served on the Board of EC since 2009, and is also the vice-chairman of the Linesville Community and Business Alliance and a Board member of the Linesville Ministerium in Linesville, Pennsylvania. Although he is fully retired, he is also a Recovery Support Specialist at Alpine Springs Rehabilitation and Recovery Center, also in Linesville, PA.
When it comes to service, Steve attributes many of his thoughts and ideals to the time he spent working as a volunteer fisheries extension agent with the Peace Corps in Nepal. He has had the opportunity to travel around the world and meet people from countless different cultures, religions and traditions. His love for God, His people and His Creation have all been shaped and molded by the incredible wealth of these experiences.
Steve and his wife Ruth, their son Thomas, and dog Keiko live near Amish country in Pennsylvania. When he isn’t running a meeting or loading wood in the fire, you’ll find him reading a good book on his porch.
