application process

Are you ready for a year in mission? A year of full-time service requires deep commitment, flexibility, a willingness to take risks, to be stretched, a sense of humor, good health and a positive, faith-filled disposition.

Are you eligible? Prospective DVs must be 21 or older, have two years of college or work experience, and have a social security number or a valid visa through July 2023. DVUSA also accepts married couples who have no dependents.

The priority deadline for the application is March 1st. Early applicants have a greater selection of ministries to choose from. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until May 31st or until all positions are filled. Those who apply after March 1st are encouraged to contact DVUSA at 312-226-0919 to learn which ministry positions are still available.
