Orientation is the kickstart to a Lasallian Volunteer’s service year, and it ensures a smooth transition for our young men and women.
On July 21, 49 volunteers will travel to Lewis University outside Chicago to begin this intense 10-day program. When Orientation is complete, a Lasallian Volunteer’s journey begins — a full year of community life with Brothers and fellow volunteers, bringing service to the poor through the gospel. At Orientation, Lasallian Volunteers will:
- Gain training and tools for use in their service
- Delve deeper into the Lasallian charism
- Build community with fellow LVs and staff

REASONS TO SAY yes!
For most of our volunteers this will be their first experience living in an intentional religious community. Their time as a Lasallian Volunteer includes education to expand their understanding of the Catholic faith and spiritual formation to strengthen their relationship with God.
LVs are saying yes! to a year of…
…Service with the nation’s neediest populations
…Growing in their faith in the Lasallian tradition
…Living in an intentional community
…Responding to God’s call in their lives
