Youth Involvement

Youth Body2If you are a high school or college student looking for a way to make a difference in the world, or for a place to volunteer your time and talents; or if you are a youth minister or teacher looking for a worthwhile service site for your group or class…

You’ve come to the right place! Youth are always welcome in our homes, for they bring joy and new life to the elderly like no one else can. As they serve, young people also discover the truth of Jesus’ words, “It is more blessed to give than to receive!” (Acts 20:35).

Young people are welcome individually or in groups to entertain the Residents, animate a dance or Bingo party, or perform a variety of service projects – from raking leaves and washing windows to peeling vegetables or cleaning wheelchairs.

Hospitality Club

Many of our homes have a Hospitality Club for Catholic girls (junior high and/or high school) who wish to volunteer on an ongoing basis, while sharing in times of prayer and recreation with the Little Sisters and other young women. These clubs usually meet one Saturday per month for several hours.

If you are interested in volunteering alone or in a group, or in learning more about our Hospitality Clubs, contact the home nearest you.

Spring into Service – Live-in Service Program

Youth Body1Our live-in service program is open to college-age Catholic women who wish to experience our life and mission firsthand over an extended period of time. Week-long experiences are possible during fall, winter or spring break.

Summer placements are possible in many of our U.S. homes and can be arranged abroad for those with some foreign language ability. For those wishing to commit to at least 6 weeks of service, paid positions are possible in our U.S. homes.
