Apply to be a St. Joseph Worker!
Thank you for your interest in the St. Joseph Worker Program!
We offer you a year committed to justice, spirituality, community and leadership. This can be a powerful path to transformation!
All of the information you’ll need to apply is included in the application packet available in the above link.
When you’ve completed the application, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
Keep in mind that preference will be given to applications received before or on March 15th for volunteer years beginning that following August. We will review each application as it comes in and accept applicants on a rolling basis. Applications received after mid-March will be reviewed and accepted as program space allows, as placements are limited and will be filled as qualified applicants are chosen.
Once we receive your completed application, the following must happen before acceptance into the program can be finalized:
1) Your application is reviewed by the St. Joseph Worker interview team. At the team’s recommendation you will be invited in for a personal interview. We will contact you either way.
2) Your initial interview before the St. Joseph Workers interview team will determine provisional acceptance into the program. If you are recommended for acceptance, then on-site interviews are arranged at the work placement sites where there may be a good match with your interest and skills. These interviews will take place with the work supervisor and, on occasion, SJW staff. If an applicant is traveling from out of the area to interview, then placement site interviews may be arranged before provisional acceptance is offered, in order to ease the scheduling and logistics involved with traveling to interview.
3) Once everyone (you, SJW staff, and work placement supervisor) agrees that a suitable match has been made—then acceptance can be finalized.
4) If an emergency or other special circumstance arises that causes you to withdraw your application at any stage (especially after final acceptance), please let us know as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about the interview process, the application, or the program in general, please don’t hesitate to call. We look forward to talking with you!
Peace to you as you discern the next steps in your life.
Please contact Bridgette at email@example.com with any questions concerning the application. We look forward to what may be!
