Introducing the 2017-2018 Good Shepherd Volunteers!
We are proud to introduce the incredible 2017-2018 volunteers! The Good Shepherd Volunteer year began this August with a week-long Orientation at Loyola Retreat House in Morristown, NJ. Our volunteers spent the week getting to know each other, learning about the GSV mission and history, and diving deeper into our four tenets of social justice, simplicity, spirituality, and community.
This year we have 8 domestic volunteers placed in California, New Jersey and New York as well as 3 international volunteers placed in Thailand and Bolivia!
