Bon Secours Volunteer Ministry is a year-long volunteer program for recent college graduates located in Baltimore, Maryland. Volunteers commit to live out the 5 pillars of our organization throughout their year of service: live simply, practice God’s justice, grow spiritually, develop community, and learn through service.
Our volunteers work in one of three fields: healthcare (hospital, community health program, etc) social services (child development, etc) or education. Aside from their volunteer placements, volunteers live together near their placement sites. In community, volunteers share meals, pray together and learn from each other’s experiences. Bon Secours volunteers also receive a modest monthly stipend for their living expenses, as well as the opportunity to earn an AmeriCorps education award, when available.
Beacause we are a small program,volunteers have the chance to receive regular support from staff, and we can often work together with volunteers to find placement sites that fit both the needs of the volunteer and the community.
Some of the images featured on our site were pictures taken by our former volunteers of murals around the city of Baltimore. To learn more about the mural project sponsored by the Baltimore Love Project, check out their website, baltimoreloveproject.com.
