The Vincentian Mission Corps is looking for a volunteer to serve as a Teacher Aide at Our Lady of Visitacion School. Our Lady of the Visitacion is located in the Visitacion Valley district, next to the largest housing project in San Francisco. This K to 8th grade school seeks to help its students find an alternative to the poverty surrounding them by providing a nurturing learning environment. Volunteers must have a college degree, or related life/work experience and interest in education. The Volunteer will assist classroom teachers with general classroom duties including working with reading and math groups, working with students in small groups or individually. Teacher aides are intended to help students acquire intellectual, social, physical and emotional skills appropriate to their level of maturity and to enable students to appreciate themselves and others as children of God participating in a faith 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 $6000 Americorps Education Award upon successful completion of the program. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
VMC is also dedicated to growing as an anti-racist organization, dismantling white supremacy, and working to build a more just society. We are looking for applicants who are interested in seriously engaging with this mission in a spirit of humility, openness, and vulnerability.-For more information and to request an application, please visit https://vincentianmissioncorps.net/volunteer/become-a-volunteer.
