Mission Statement

In partnership with the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, lay women and men of Mercy Volunteer Corps enter into relationship with people who are economically poor or marginalized. In a spirit of mutuality, volunteers cultivate mercy and justice in the world by embracing compassionate service, social justice, spirituality and a simple lifestyle in community.

Description

Mercy Volunteers commit to one year of service in the U.S. and to two years of service in international placements in Central and South America. Mercy Volunteers work in edcuation, healthcare, and social services. Housing, transportation, medical insurance, and a small personal and food stipend are provided during the service year. School loans can be deferred, and U.S. volunteers are eligible for an AmeriCorps Education Award after completing one year of service.
