The St. Joseph Worker Program is a year-long service opportunity for women ages 21-30 in preparation for a lifelong commitment to social change and personal transformation. Individual growth and development are built on the values of leadership, spirituality, social justice and intentional community grounded in living simply and sustainably. Rooted within the spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph, St. Joseph Workers live the mission: “Love of God and the dear neighbor without distinction.”
About the program
Every volunteer is matched with a placement, where they spend a 36-hour workweek. One night a week is designated for Sharing of the Heart, a spiritual practice for the Sisters of St. Joseph during which each household spends an evening with spirituality, listening and learning from one another. In addition, the program includes weekly community nights, multiple retreats, social justice opportunities and other development activities to make the year a truly transformative experience
