Mission Statement


At Notre Dame Mission Volunteers, we believe that education is the fundamental tool in the struggle of the poor for human dignity, self-esteem, and self-determination. We seek to build community among our members, as well as the people with whom we work by reaching out across culture and class. We are committed to helping people help themselves. Our goal is to promote and encourage education, community empowerment, leadership development and multicultural harmony in hopes of producing greater unity, less violence, and better-informed citizens in our communities.

Description


In 1995, NDMV sought a partnership with AmeriCorps to allow for an increase in the number of members, offering greater community service in financially-limited sites. This partnership formed Notre Dame Mission Volunteers-AmeriCorps. We have over 300 volunteers serving throughout the US. Our main focus through ChristianVolunteering.org is to find volunteers to serve internationally in Peru, Kenya, and Nigeria!
