For the past 30 years MVC has been transforming lives, perspectives, and the world. The emphasis of the program is service, community and prayer.
Volunteer possibilities include teaching or nursing, working in homeless shelters, clinics and social service agencies in urban and rural settings throughout the United States and Guyana.
