About Us

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 U.S. and South America. Volunteers work in education, healthcare, and social services while living together in a community and growing spiritually.

Mercy Volunteers receive housing, medical insurance, transportation, a small food and personal stipend, and school loan deferment. U.S. Volunteers may also be eligible for an AmeriCorps Education Award.

Mission Statement:

In partnership with the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, lay women and men of Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC) enter into relationship with people who are economically poor and marginalized. In a spirit of mutuality, volunteers cultivate mercy and justice in the world by embracing compassionate service, social justice, spirituality and a simple lifestyle in community.
