Serve in Guyana 2019 August – 2020 July!

Posted on

Mercy Volunteer Corps 

Mercy Volunteers serve in Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, South America. Volunteers serve for one year in an International placement with an opportunity to renew for a second year. Mercy Volunteer Corps has four service sites in Guyana. International volunteers can choose to serve at one or two of the sites. It is helpful for the applicants to have an openness to serving where the need is greatest. Placement at a particular site is based on the skills and interests of the volunteer and the needs of the site. Volunteers begin with a collaborative cross-cultural orientation in late July prior to the Mercy Volunteer Corps Orientation in August. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The priority deadline for applications is January 18th and the final deadline is March 1st. After screening, applicants for international placement will be phone interviewed and then travel for a personal interview as part of a discernment weekend. The weekend provides a prayerful retreat setting where candidates can share together in discerning their call to international service. Discernment Weekend will be held March 22-24, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA. Get more info here: https://www.mercyvolunteers.org/volunteer/international-program/
