Applying to GSV:
We emphasize a personal approach in our application process. We hope to look beyond your transcripts and resume to learn more about you as a person. Our goal is to find the best match between your unique gifts and our placement needs.
- Our application process:
- GSV Staff and Admissions Committee receive and review the application.
- GSV conducts a skype interview with the applicant. We may also invite you to speak with former volunteers at your site placement of interest.
- Once a site has been mutually agreed upon, the applicant interviews with the staff of the site placement.
- If the applicant and the site agree that the placement and program is a good fit, the applicant is accepted to GSV!
Who Can Apply?
Good Shepherd Volunteers welcomes applications from anyone at least 21 years of age. We welcome applicants from outside the US who are able to secure their own Visa.
We encourage you to apply as early as possible. This increases the likelihood of you being placed at a service site that best matches your preferences.
The final deadline for applying to the 2018-2019 program year was July 15, 2019. We will begin accepting applications for the 2020-2021 program in the fall of 2019.
