Founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and funded through a partnership with AmeriCorps, Notre Dame Mission Volunteers (NDMVA) has grown from just 6 members to more than 400. Volunteers are recruited each year from local communities and college campuses across the United States. NDMVA members work to empower the economically disadvantaged and oppressed through education and personal hands-on support.
They tutor children and adults, organize after-school activities, and model and teach conflict resolution and parental effectiveness. Volunteers currently serve in 23 cities in the United States and in Haiti, Nicaragua, and Nigeria.
