Service Site Opportunities

BC5Participation in Brendan’s Crossing requires 30-35 hours a week of voluntary service at one or more of partner churches or organizations. In exchange for this service, our partner organizations provide funding which covers fellows’ room, board, stipend, health insurance, and participation in the programming and activities of the community. Whenever possible we place a fellow in a role where they are partnered with a church and a neighborhood agency or outreach.
