Being a Dominican Volunteer
Dominican Volunteers USA is a full-time service experience sponsored by the Order of Preachers, Dominican women and men around the United States.
Dominican Volunteers are committed men and women who give 11 months (second year renewable) in ministry as well as in Dominican community. The DVUSA experience starts with an Orientation in August. Two additional mid-year retreats (February and July) provide opportunities for reflection, renewal, volunteer community, and closure at the end of each year.
Volunteers live in Dominican communities around the United States, both with each other and with vowed religious. Possible placement cities have included the Bronx, Long Island, Newark, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Redwood City, Grand Rapids, Racine, Salt Lake City, and Bloomington.
