Why do you want to volunteer?

“I want to volunteer because I want to put my skills at the service of a mission I believe in and spend my time in a way that both fulfills me and helps the world. Additionally, last year I was particularly concerned about orienting myself outward before I study theology in grad school. I think accompanying people who are marginalized will ground my theological education and work in what matters.”

Why do you want to volunteer with Precious Blood Volunteers?

“I was drawn in by the restorative justice happening at PBMR! I think there’s such promise in a practice like this, one that focuses on healing and relationship.”

What are you looking forward to about your volunteer experience?

“I’m looking forward to simple living in community and growing spiritually.”
