Loretto Volunteers extend the Loretto Community’s outreach to those most in need through their service at immigrant and refugee advocacy organizations, health clinics, shelters for folks experiencing homelessness, food pantries, Loretto schools and many more sites.

While serving for one-year terms, volunteers live in community with each other and receive a subsistence stipend that covers their basic needs. Fourteen participants now serve in Denver, El Paso, Washington, D.C., New York City and St. Louis.

The program opens a pathway for young people to build their careers in peace and justice work, while encouraging them to develop strong foundational values and community ties that sustain their passions when the going gets tough.
