How We Serve
Augustinian volunteers enter the service experience with a spirit of openness, an enthusiasm for building relationships and an excitement to learn and grow. Domestic volunteers commit to serve 40-50 hours per week for 10 months (September through June) and international volunteers serve for 11 months (mid-January through mid-December). Although service site partnerships can vary slightly from year to year, most volunteers serve in well established placements in one of three main areas: Education, Campus Ministry and Social Service. A match between volunteer and a partnering service site is made based upon the preferences and experience of the individual as well as the needs of the partnering school or organization. It is the goal of the AV program to place volunteers in service settings both where their skills and experience will be well utilized and where he or she will be able to learn and grow.
