The Volunteer Venture Began in 1992…
The Notre Dame Mission Volunteer (NDMV) Program of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur was founded in 1992 and began placing volunteers at sites nationwide to work alongside God’s people, especially the economically disadvantaged, with a focus on promoting literacy and education.
We Partnered with AmeriCorps in 1995…
In 1995, NDMV sought a partnership with the federally-funded AmeriCorps service program to allow for an increase in the number of members, offering greater community service in financially-limited sites.
AmeriCorps, which is often referred to as the domestic Peace Corps, brings together citizens of diverse backgrounds to serve communities in the areas of education, public safety, human needs and the environment.This was the perfect match for the Notre Dame Mission Volunteers!
The results of this successful partnership are evident in every aspect of Hope CommUnity Center. Over the last 18 years, hundreds of volunteers have each given a year of their lives through the program now known as Notre Dame AmeriCorps (NDA).
