The Benedictine Volunteer Corp

Founded in 2003, the Saint John's Benedictine Volunteer Corps provides SJU students or alumni with volunteer opportunities at Benedictine monasteries. Volunteers begin their commitment with a two week monastic experience program at Saint John's followed by an assignment to another Benedictine monastery (current sites include Guatemala, New Jersey, Rome, and Tanzania).

Once at their program site, Volunteers are expected to participate in the prayer schedule and eat with the community work (at least one service a day) as well as work between 30 to 40 hours per week (participating in the apostolic work of the host monastery).
