Covenant House Faith Community is looking for fun, friendly, compassionate college graduates to serve the homeless and at-risk youth of Covenant House, through direct care and administrative support roles. In addition to serving our youth and building professional skills, you will live with other college graduates focused on Catholic/Christian spirituality and simple community living.
Faith Community members dedicate their year to our program's three pillars of Service, Community, and Prayer. Your service takes place in one of our shelter sites, where you work 40 hours a week helping at-risk youth to get back on a healthy life path. You are supported in this ministry by the community you live with: 2-3 other volunteers in a home provided by the program, where prayer and spirituality are important parts of our daily lives.
Our Faith Community program is a one-year program that begins in mid-August of each year. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with our Early Bird Deadline on February 1st, and our Final Deadline on June 15th.
Placement Sites are in Anchorage, AK; Atlanta, GA; Atlantic City, NJ; New York, NY; and Chicago, IL.
