Volunteer for a Week, a Month or a Year!

Glenmary offers many opportunities for volunteers interested in serving the home missions.

Glenmary’s Group Volunteer Program is designed to give participants a firsthand experience of missionary service. Each week-long session is a retreat-like mission immersion blending the values of service, culture, prayer, reflection and sharing in an environment of simple living. The Glenmary Group Volunteer Program site is located in Grainger County, Tenn.
