Vincentian Volunteers of Cincinnati is an 11-month-long, faith-based residential service program that provides young professionals ages 21-30 an opportunity to live in faith, grow in friendship and serve in solidarity by giving deeply of themselves to their neighbors in need. VVCs live in intentional community and serve full-time in St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati’s West End Outreach Center and Service Learning Center, providing both direct and indirect service to our neighbors in need.
Returning citizens face many challenges when rebuilding their lives following incarceration, and many times these challenges can keep them stuck in poverty. St. Vincent de Paul’s Re-Entry program addresses these challenges, providing returning citizens with mentorship, access to needed resources, and ongoing support as they work toward employment and self-sufficiency. In this position, you will help support returning citizens seeking to gain stability through our Working Better Together Program and through one-on-one meetings to connect them to our services and programs, as well as provide education around Re-Entry to our participants through the Ozanam Center for Service Learning Retreats. This position will be part-time, coupled with another part-time VVC position, depending on your interest and placement needs.
Home located down the street from service placement. Each volunteer will have their own bedroom with shared bathrooms, kitchen, and living space.
Benefits: monthly personal stipend, education award upon program completion to apply toward student loans or future schooling, personal and spiritual formation in the Vincentian tradition, health insurance, vehicle access for program-related and community activities, room and board (utilities included) at the fully furnished VVC house, professional development and career exploration, assistance in seeking loan deferment, monthly cell phone reimbursement, wireless internet access.
