Become a Volunteer

We are excited that you are considering a year of community, social justice, and simple and sustainable living with Lutheran Volunteer Corps!

Lutheran Volunteer Corps is a faith-based, full-time service and leadership program operating in 13 cities across the United States. Our mission is to unite people to work for peace with justice.  We do this by placing Volunteers in full-time positions at social justice organizations for one year.

LVC volunteers come from a wide variety of faith backgrounds, and do not need to be Lutheran. All our volunteers live together in community and practice simple and sustainable living. LVC Volunteers receive a stipend which covers housing, food, transportation, health insurance, and personal expenses. Read more program eligibility details in our Frequently Asked Questions.

The LVC application and matching process is an ongoing discernment process. Completing the application and going through the LVC interview provides space for figuring out of LVC is the right fit for you and your gifts. There are many service programs out there and it's important to take time to figure out which is the right one for you. The Catholic Volunteer Network is a helpful resource to compare programs and LVC is proud to be named as a Service Program that Changes the World.

Feel free to contact LVC staff at recruitment@lutheranvolunteercorps.org or 612-787-8844 with any further questions or conversation. We are excited to hear from you and to accompany you on this journey!
