Assumption Mission Associates

Goal of Program

Assumption Mission Associates (AMA) is a ministry of young adults in collaboration with the Religious of the Assumption Sisters in their mission to effect change in society through prayer, education, and community building. With the Assumption spirit, the AMA volunteers bear witness to Jesus’ love for all people. The relationships that they cultivate transform them as well as the people they accompany. They exercise their commitment to service in solidarity and communion, in faith and in trust.

Type of Placement

Whether you want to serve domestically we have many programs to be involved in - as an ESL teacher in a middle school or help with refugees, legal assistance or youth ministry in Chaparral, NM. Or adult ESL, food insecurity, or an after school program for inner-city children at a large parish in Worcester, MA. Internationally, many community development projects in the Philippines, or children after school projects in the U.K. Whether you are a recent college graduate or a young professional dissatisfied with the workplace and looking for more meaning in your life, your primary role as an AMA will be to empower the poor, the young and the marginalized. Accompanying the under-served, AMA's discover who they really are and how their faith is deeply a part of them.
