Teacher assistants are needed at the Drueding Center, a transitional housing program for women and children experiencing homelessness in inner city Philadelphia. The teacher assistant works with the head teacher in developing and implementing activities for age appropriate children.
A health liaison is needed also at the Drueding Center to help advocate for children and to insure they receive proper medical care, provide health education to women and children and screen children for appropriate immunizations, among other duties.
This opportunity is part of Redeemer Ministry Corps (RMC), a long-term (11 month) volunteer program located in the Greater Philadelphia area.
RMC volunteers are called to bring a caring, comforting and healing presence to those in need through service in healthcare and social services. Volunteers live together in community and serve full-time in ministries of the Sisters of the Redeemer.

Redeemer Ministry Corps is a long-term volunteer program sponsored by the Sisters of the Redeemer and offers volunteers the opportunity to journey beside those who suffer in some way, whether materially, spiritually or physically. The main components of the program are service, faith and community and are integrated throughout the year of service.
Redeemer Ministry Corps welcomes women and men, 21 years of age and older who are committed to giving a year of service, living in community and participating in a simple lifestyle and evenings of prayer and reflection. RMC volunteers serve full time in ministries sponsored by the Sisters and join the Sisters once a week for community dinner and prayer. RMC volunteers are committed to serving vulnerable populations through service in healthcare, social service, elder care and environmental care. Ministry placements are tailored to fit the skills and gifts of the volunteers, as well as to meet the needs of the sites in which they serve.
We are looking for 5 volunteers to start the end of August 2019. Room and Board, health insurance, transportation and a monthly stipend provided. Check out our website for more information on service placements and our application process. We look forward to hearing from you!
