St. Joseph Workers are women committed to social change who live according to the values of community, social justice, spirituality and leadership.
We seek women who are mature, motivated and want to work to end poverty, violence and other forms of oppression.
St. Joseph Workers live together in an Orange County, CA home with their fellow St. Joseph Workers. Each woman contributes to the intentional community that forms there.
During the week, St. Joseph Workers spend 36 hours at a placement site that addresses an important issue such as poverty, housing, violence, hunger, health care and more. Placement possibilities are decided on at the beginning of the year according to the mutual interest of the applicant, the placement site supervisor, and the St. Joseph Worker team/staff.
Sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, St. Joseph Workers are more than volunteers. They receive numerous benefits. Housing, food, health insurance, a monthly stipend, transportation to and from work, excellent training opportunities, and more are included.
Placement sites are available in health care, education, social services, and more!
Job descriptions at placement sites can be adjusted based on the interest, skills and talents of the St. Joseph Worker. There is flexibility to meet the needs of both the SJW and the placement site. The SJW will gain great professional experience, in the office and in the community.
