Franciscan Community Volunteers

Goal of Program

Franciscan Community Volunteers seek to match young adults' passions to a non-profit in need. Using the Franciscan lens of living the Gospel, we serve the poor, live simply and grow together in faith and community.

Type of Placement

Placements include: youth mentoring, homeless outreach, social service agencies, special education, child care at Domestic Abuse Shelter, healthcare outreach, Hispanic outreach, senior services, etc. Placement sites are determined depending upon the gifts, talents, and preference of the individual volunteer and the needs of the community.
