The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Cincinnati has an exciting year of service program called Vincentian Volunteers of Cincinnati (VVC). The program empowers young adults to become community leaders who live their faith by directly serving their neighbors in
A VVC member becomes a full-time volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul’s Outreach Center in Cincinnati and lives in an intentional community with other VVC members for 11 months.
A Vincentian Volunteer of Cincinnati will learn through new experiences by working one-on-one with people who are experiencing poverty and gaining a new understanding of their roll in the community, issues of justice and poverty, and how their faith calls them to respond.
