The Lasallian Volunteers — a program of the De La Salle Christian Brothers of the Lasallian Region of North America — provides dedicated, well-trained volunteers for one or more years of service to schools and agencies of the Brothers whose mission is to serve the poor. Acting out of faith, rooted in the Gospel, and sharing community with the Brothers and other Lasallians, the volunteers empower the poor by personalized service primarily through education. Lasallian Volunteers change the world for the better and discover themselves transformed in the process.
We will be an ever-expanding movement of volunteers, alumni and friends serving the poor in association with the De La Salle Christian Brothers and sharing community and faith in the tradition of Saint John Baptist de La Salle.
LVs will transform the lives of impoverished children and families in all Lasallian ministries to the poor nationwide that request our help. To be effective in their outreach, current volunteers will benefit from the most appropriate training and support network possible. Formed spiritually during their service years, alumni will continue in the Lasallian mission to the poor.
We will continually develop appropriate structures for cultivating among all our members service to the poor, community and faith. The Lasallian Volunteers movement will accompany the Brothers as they return to their Founder’s mission to the poor and form effective communities that make this possible.
