Would you recommend Notre Dame Mission Volunteers-AmeriCorps?

After reading the other review, I just wanted to clarify why this organization only offers volunteer housing for individuals in their twenties. That is because this is a program set up for college graduates looking into becoming a teacher.

Volunteer housing is only offered to individuals in their twenties. Not very "age-friendly".
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
