Volunteer Renewal Application (Second Year)
Interested in a second year as a DV? Complete this form by February 15 so that we can discuss your ministry/community interests. Include an updated resume that reflects your current service placement.
Answer the written response questions in paragraph form (up to one page). Check all boxes that apply.
1. Why are you interested in serving for a 2nd year? What do you hope to give and gain that you haven’t already?
2. Reflect on the 4 Pillars: Prayer, Community, Study & Ministry. What is your current understanding of each one? Has your understanding evolved? How?
3. What ministry are you interested in? Are there any specific ministry sites you are interested in?
Check all that apply:
I want to stay in my ministry and my community next year if both are available.
I want to stay in my community but would like a different ministry, if available.
I want a different community and different ministry, if available.
I am interested in the following locations:
NORTH EAST: Long Island, NY; New York, NY MIDWEST: Adrian, MI; Grand Rapids, MI; Chicago, IL; Madison, WI; Racine, WI SOUTH: Atlanta, GA; Houston, TX; New Orleans, LA WEST COAST: Redwood City, CA; San Francisco, CA
Note on Community/Ministry Placement:
Please note that remaining in your current ministry/community or changing to a specific ministry/community is also contingent on that ministry/community renewing their request for a volunteer and approving your placement. Interviews with ministry and community sites are still required.
4. Please note any updates on your health re: any new diagnoses, medications, allergies, conditions, dietary restrictions/preferences etc.
Second-year volunteers receive a stipend of $150/month (before taxes). Some communities will not host second-year volunteers in the “gap weeks” of July between service years; though staff can assist in finding temporary residence. You may be asked to fill out supplementary application materials as needed. In submitting this application I affirm that I have read and understand the policies above and hereby submit my application for renewal as a Dominican Volunteer for the 2020-2021 service year beginning August 2020.
