Program Overview (from the program website):

Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC) is a full-time lay volunteer program offering placements in the continental U.S. and Guyana, South America for a one or two year commitment. Mercy Volunteers serve in Education, Healthcare & Social Services. Volunteers commit equally to service, a simple lifestyle in community, and personal and communal spiritual growth.

Rooted in the spirit of the Scriptures and Catherine McAuley and challenged by the needs of a world in a new millennium, Mercy Volunteer Corps, committed to achieving a more merciful and just world, invites women and men to join with the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas to:
- expand the boundaries of service to poor, sick, and uneducated persons within and beyond the U.S.;
- encourage multicultural diversity within the Mercy Volunteer Corps community and among the people served;
- participate in building community with poor persons and the other ministers of service at the service sites;
- embrace the growth inherent in the conversion process of acting in solidarity with economically poor or marginalized people;
- integrate the learned values of service, community, and prayer into their life experience; and
- develop new relationships with the Mercy community throughout and beyond their service year(s).
