Vincentian Volunteers of Cincinnati

Goal of Program

Vincentian Volunteers of Cincinnati offers young adults ages 21-30 an opportunity to give deeply of themselves to their neighbors in need, rooted in the Vincentian Values of simplicity, humility, gentleness, selflessness and zeal. Vincentian Volunteers live in intentional community while serving full time, offering support, challenge, and encouragement to each other as they explore identity, faith and spirituality and issues of social justice, with the hope of leaving the program as individuals with a deeper understanding of systemic injustice, committed to advocating for our siblings on the margins in both their professional and personal lives.
