L’Arche St. Louis and Vincentian Mission Corps – $5000 stipend available

Posted on:
Start: Aug 8, 2019 / End: Not Applicable / Location: St. Louis, MO

The Vincentian Mission Corps is looking for a volunteer to serve as an assistant with L’Arche St. Louis beginning August 18, 2018. At L’Arche, persons with a developmental disability are known as “core members,” and “assistants” are those who come to share life with them. Assistants accompany core members in their activities of daily life: creating home and supporting core members in sharing their gifts within the house and the larger community. Vincentian Mission Corps members live in St. Louis in a community with 3-5 other volunteers. Our volunteers learn about Vincentian spirituality, faith, simple living, and social justice (particularly racial justice work in St. Louis). VMC members receive housing, a monthly food and living stipend, transportation, professional development, health insurance if needed, potential student loan deferment, and a $5000 award upon successful completion of the program. Please contact mary.pimmel-freeman@doc.org with any questions. For more information and to request an application, please visit https://vincentianmissioncorps.net/volunteer/become-a-volunteer.
