Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry

Organization Description: 

We are a full-time volunteer program, giving volunteers the opportunity to immerse themselves for a year in the spirit of service practiced by the sisters of Bon Secours. Through partnerships with other Bon Secours community organizations, our volunteers serve full-time in one of three areas: healthcare, education, or social services. Our program is based on 5 pillars, which our volunteers commit to live our during their year of service: develop community, learn through service, practice God's justice, live simply, and grow spiritually.
