Mission: The Lasallian Volunteers — a program of the De La Salle Christian Brothers of the Lasallian Region of North America — provides dedicated, well-trained Volunteers for one or more years of service to schools and agencies of the Brothers whose mission is to serve the poor. Acting out of faith, rooted in the Gospel, and sharing community with the Brothers and other Lasallians, the volunteers empower the poor by personalized service primarily through education. Lasallian Volunteers change the world for the better and discover themselves transformed in the process.
About: Lasallian Volunteers is a longterm service program in the Catholic tradition.
In the early 1980s, in response to the needs of the poor served by the De La Salle Christian Brothers in the Midwest and New York, communities of Brothers invited lay volunteers to join them in their mission.
By the early 1990s, Lasallian Volunteers had grown into a national movement, with a staff working through the Christian Brothers Conference to recruit, train and support the volunteers.
The number of volunteers increased, and service even extended for a time internationally to Africa and the West Indies. Since the mid 1990s, Lasallian Volunteers has provided men and women with opportunities for longterm service to Lasallian Ministries with high-need populations across the country and the intentional accompaniment to grow throughout the experience.
Today Lasallian Volunteers responds creatively to the educational needs of those in poverty by providing volunteers who are:
- generous and talented
- well trained and supported
- from diverse backgrounds across the United States
- interested in a unique and rewarding experience
A unique dimension of the program is that volunteers live in community with Brothers and other Lasallian partners. This intentional faith-based community builds relationships that support members in service and spirituality–deepening the volunteers’ experience and enlivening the community.
