What’s the process?
The first step is to submit an application along with your resume and a recent photo! The application can be completed and submitted online or downloaded and sent via email.
After your initial application has been received, a member of the Augustinian Volunteer staff will contact you to arrange an interview. Our offices are located just outside of Philadelphia in Villanova, PA. Interviews will be conducted either in person or via video call depending on your proximity to the Philadelphia area.
After the interview, you will be asked to submit supplemental materials. This secondary application includes three references, a medical form and a release form.
Once all application materials have been received and an interview has taken place, your application is considered complete. Candidates who have completed the application process will be reviewed at monthly Advisory Board meetings beginning in February and continuing until all placements have been filled (typically early summer).
When is the deadline?
The Augustinian Volunteers will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 volunteer year in November. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all positions have been filled. Once a prospective volunteer has completed all steps in the process–initial application, interview and secondary application–his or her application is complete and can be reviewed at the nearest advisory board meeting. The Augustinian Volunteer Advisory Board meets monthly, beginning in February and continuing throughout the spring and early summer or until all positions are filled. The domestic volunteer experience begins with Orientation at the end of August 2018 and concludes at the end of June 2019. The international experience beings in January 2019 and concludes in December 2019.
