Posted by Mercy Volunteer Corps: Cristo Rey Sacramento High School provides a quality private education along with work-study experience to students from low-income families, thus empowering them to overcome economic barriers and achieve success. Most students represent the first generation in their families to graduate from high school. Cristo Rey is looking for a Student Activities and Campus Ministry Assistant. Duties would include some combination of the following based on the interest of the volunteer and needs of the site: Tutoring and coordinating other tutors; assisting campus ministry with retreats, liturgies and service programs; assisting students with college applications and visits to local college campuses; supervising students who have on-campus work sites and transporting other students to off-campus work study sites.
This full-time volunteer position is available through Mercy Volunteer Corps. Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC) is a full-time lay volunteer program offering placements in the continental U.S. and Guyana, South America. We invite women and men to compassionate service with people who are economically poor or marginalized in our society. MVC calls volunteers to service characterized by mutuality, respect, and compassion. Rather than “giving to, and doing for,” service with MVC is about the mutual empowerment of volunteers and clients, both giving and receiving, and advocating with instead of for the people they encounter daily in their service.
Volunteers have the opportunity to embrace service, a simple lifestyle in community, and personal and communal spiritual growth. Mercy Volunteers receive housing, medical insurance, transportation, food and personal stipends, professional development, retreat opportunities, and are eligible for student loan deferment.
This opportunity is open to ALL MAJORS. Service placements include positions in nursing, teaching, social work, health care administration, case management, and more.
