Volunteer Opportunities

The following are current overseas volunteer assignments. Creating a volunteer opportunity is a process, which may take up to 6 months. In that process, Global Ministries attempts to match an individual's skills and interests with a need or opportunity that one of our international partners may have at the moment. Please plan accordingly for this time of dialogue and discernment as you consider your available dates.

International partner churches/agencies, and Global Ministries are not always able to financially assist volunteers in overseas service. Overseas volunteers are usually expected to fund their work and living expenses. In some cases, the host institution may provide housing or meals, but this is not always possible.

For more information about volunteer experiences please contact Beth Miller at bmiller@dom.disciples.org.
