Mercy Volunteer Corps

Sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC) promotes social change by placing and supporting volunteers for one year of service with people who are economically poor and marginalized. Mercy Volunteers live a simple lifestyle in community while practicing compassionate service and spirituality.

Mercy Volunteers serve in the United States and South America for one year with an option to renew for a second year of service. Volunteers receive benefits including housing, transportation, monthly stipends, health insurance, student loan deferment, and post-graduate education discounts. Applicants are invited to work with MVC staff in choosing their service site and city. For more information about MVC's program please visit the Mercy Volunteer Corps website or email contactus@mercyvolunteers.org.

If you are interested in looking into the possibility for yourself, just contact Sister Carol Mucha, R.S.M., of MercyCare at mucha@sxu.edu or at 708-297-4232.
