Mission & Culture:

Good Shepherd Services (GSS) operates 100 programs, which help over 30,000 youth and family members in struggling neighborhoods throughout New York City. All GSS programs are united by a common goal—to create opportunities that help our participants succeed at school, at home, and in their community. The newly formed Mission & Culture Department, Anti-Racism & Equity Branch addresses that goal through the specific lens of creating equity and justice.

GSV Role

The Good Shepherd Volunteer for the Mission and Culture Department will be responsible for supporting the Assistant Director of Mission and Culture in animating and embedding Good Shepherd Services’ mission, vision, values and culture throughout the organization with a commitment to social and racial justice as well as equity. The GSV in this placement assists with the administrative needs of the department, such as drafting documents, scheduling meetings, taking minutes, and coordinating special events that align with the mission, vision and culture of Good Shepherd Services. They will also have the opportunity to attend key meetings and work alongside other team members.


Good Shepherd Volunteers connects recent college graduates to one-year, full time volunteer opportunities serving women, children, and adolescents affected by poverty, violence, and neglect. Developing relationships with under-resourced communities empowers volunteers to grow in a knowledge and faith that inspires them to lead a life of seeking justice. GSV has placements in New York, New Jersey and the Washington D.C. area in a variety of fields: public policy and advocacy, economic justice, youth counseling, foster care and education.
