Mission Statement

Good Shepherd Volunteers recruits, educates, and supports full-time volunteers who use their God-given talents to serve women, adolescents, and children affected by poverty, violence, and neglect in domestic and international placements. Our volunteers live out the four tenets of Social Justice, Simplicity, Spirituality, and Community, and are encouraged to maintain a commitment to these principles for a lifetime. Good Shepherd Volunteers, founded by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, is dedicated to honoring the sisters’ core values of Individual Dignity, Mercy, Reconciliation, and Zeal.

Description

Good Shepherd Volunteers is a one-year full-time volunteer program that serves women, children, and adolescents affected by poverty, violence and neglect. The upcoming volunteer year starts August 2017 and ends approximately July 2018.

Our volunteers live in community with each other, have a small living stipend, and practice the 4 Tenets of GSV: social justice, community, spirituality, and simplicity. We need people who are compassionate, flexible, and are up for a challenge. The populations we are working with are usually in a traumatic moment in their lives. We have placements in group homes, working with youth in and coming out of foster homes, a domestic violence shelter, in school settings, and in public policy. Our placements are located in New York, New Jersey, and Los Angeles. Please visit our website to learn more and download our application materials.
