About Brethren Volunteer Service


1451 DUNDEE AVE, ELGIN, IL 60120, US

Mission Statement

Brethren Volunteer Service Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) is a program that gives individuals a chance to advocate for justice, work for peace, serve human needs, and care for creation in a variety of settings in the United States and other countries. Since 1948, volunteers have served through BVS for a year or more, giving their time and skills to help a world in need. Although volunteers may not immediately solve deep-rooted problems, they can be part of on-going solutions


Through BVS, Brethren Volunteer Service, people give their time and skills to help a world in need. Volunteers work at issues greater than themselves, recognizing that their efforts may not immediately solve deep-rooted problems. Yet everyone can be part of the on-going work to advocate for justice, work for peace, serve human need, and care for creation.

Sharing God's love through acts of service

Volunteers bring hope, offer food and shelter, and build relationships.

BVS seeks persons willing to act on their commitment and values. We challenge individuals to offer themselves, their time, and their talents for work that is both demanding and rewarding.

Volunteers receive room, board, medical insurance, transportation to project, and a monthly allowance of $250. In most cases, educational loans may be deferred. Depending on the project, volunteers may live alone, with a family, or in a group situation.

Each volunteer must bring a willingness to serve. Working towards peace and justice, and meeting the needs of humanity and the environment calls out for persons dedicated to service.
