Help Us Transform The World

Mercy Volunteer Corps promotes social change by placing and supporting volunteers for one year of service with people who are poor and marginalized in the United States and South America. Mercy Volunteers work in education, healthcare, and social services while living together in community and growing spiritually. 

What Are Volunteers Saying?

Don’t just take our word for it.
Read what our volunteers have to say about us.

Many of us come into a year of service nervous about living and working with new people; however, your community becomes your family away from home.  Your work site becomes another family, and the people you serve make you feel welcomed.  Don’t be afraid to reach out to your community members, work sites, or the Mercy Volunteer Corps staff for help.  Everyone wants you to succeed, so never think that you are alone!

“The reason I chose to do a year of service with Mercy Volunteer Corps was to build upon the service learning experiences that I had at University of Dayton and to learn how to make service not a ‘once-in-a-while’ activity, but rather a lifestyle.”

“It is refreshing to see an organization focus its energies on the needs of the population it serves, even if that means a redirect for its staff and resources in order to more effectively serve greater numbers.”
