Post-University Service Opportunities

"The harvest is plenty, laborers are few. Come with me into the fields." Matthew 9:37-38 

Wondering what to do after graduation? Want to work in service of the poor for a year or two before you dive into your career? There are hundreds of organizations that have volunteer programs, domestic and abroad. Most of these programs pay a small stipend, provide housing in community with other volunteers (also mostly just out of college), and provide spiritual and practical training.
