Lasallian Volunteers of the De La Salle Christian Brothers

Goal of Program

The Lasallian Volunteers program of the De La Salle Christian Brothers provides dedicated, well-trained Volunteers for one or more years of service to schools and agencies of the Brothers whose Mission is to serve the poor. Acting out of faith, rooted in the Gospel, and sharing community with the Brothers and other Lasallians, the Volunteers empower the poor by personalized service primarily through education. Lasallian Volunteers change the world for the better and discover themselves transformed in the process. More than a third of the volunteers return for additional years of service. To date, more than 750 volunteers have participated in this intense program of faith, community and service. Many of them continue to serve in Lasallian ministries today.
