Since 1963, Catholic Volunteer Network has sought to bring together people who have a heart for service. Today, our community consists of volunteer program staff; volunteers and missioners (prospective, current, and former!); colleges and universities; dioceses and parishes; religious communities; lay groups; partner organizations; individuals who are champions for service; and a dedicated staff and Board of Directors.

Our foundation is built on the gospel and rooted in the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. We strive to increase awareness of the opportunity to live out one’s faith in service to the poor, and actively work to remove any barriers that may prevent people from engaging in faith-based service.

We welcome you to become a part of the CVN community. To learn more about our work, continue reading the sections below.
