Full-Time Paid Volunteer Year with Good Shepherd Volunteers

Start your career in social justice with our volunteer program!

Good Shepherd Volunteers offers year-long opportunities to serve women, teens, and children in a variety of social service agencies. Volunteers live in community with other volunteers, receive housing, health insurance, a small stipend, mentorship, and learn about the 4 Tenets of GSV: social justice, community, spirituality, and simplicity.

We have positions serving in advocacy, domestic violence, education, juvenile justice, nonprofit support, public policy, and youth counseling. Our volunteers work side-by-side with experienced social workers, counselors, and educators, gaining a tremendous foundation for their future careers. Join us!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Real-life Experiences

Working side-by-side with experienced social workers, counselors, and educators, you'll find yourself learning and growing every day through real-life experiences.

Define your interests and gain skills that set you on a path to a rewarding career.

Supportive Community

Each volunteer is backed by a community composed of:

- Fellow volunteers, who create a close-knit bond built through shared experiences

- Accessible staff, who support the volunteers’ professional and personal growth throughout the year

- GSV alumni and supporters, who stay involved with the program in various ways

Training & Development

Challenge yourself within a safe and supportive environment.

Begin with a week-long orientation to meet your cohort, gain a deeper understanding of the mission and tenets that will serve as the foundation for your experience, and transition into community life. Development continues across four weekend retreats throughout the year.

In day-to-day work, each placement site offers professional supervision and training to support you in your role.

Additionally, you'll gain access to varied opportunities, such as training on trauma-informed practice, substitute teaching certification, the United Nations Commission on the status of women, and many more.

Personal Growth

Get to know yourself and understand your impact on those around you. You will emerge from this challenging journey a better roommate, friend, family member, partner, and employee.
