Mercy Volunteer Corps
Mercy Volunteer Corps, a program of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, seeks men and women as volunteers to serve people who are economically poor or marginalized.
Volunteers must be 21 years or older, have no dependents, are high school graduates, in good health, flexible and adaptable, compassionate, and gifted with a sense of humor. Volunteers receive room and board, a small monthly stipend, transportation to and from service, medical insurance, school loan forbearance, professional and personal growth, and the opportunity to live simply with a prayerful community.
A variety of one or two-year placement opportunities are offered. MVC serves people who are homeless, afflicted with AIDS, children and elderly in need, and people with physical and mental disabilities. MVC volunteers work with Native American communities, and through Hispanic ministries and other community organizations. To see if this challenge is for you visit: www.MercyVolunteers.org.
