Long Term Service Opportunities
Last updated December 9, 2021
Listed below are some international and domestic long term service opportunities. This is by no means a comprehensive list of all of the opportunities that exist. If you are interested in other opportunities or talking with someone about service discernment please contact Madeline Hill at email@example.com
Cristo Rey Jesuit
Houston Volunteer Service Corps
We are looking for compassionate, committed, and competent recent college graduates who desire to assist in the formation of young men and women for others. The VSC program is an 11-month commitment in which Volunteers will live simply in a faith-based community while serving the school in various capacities. The Volunteer will also receive faith and educational formation in the Jesuit-Ignatian tradition. Applications open in October for the 2022-23 school year.
Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE)
Since its founding in 1993, the Alliance for Catholic Education has been committed to sustaining, strengthening, and transforming Catholic schools. Each year, the ACE Teaching Fellows program welcomes approximately 90 talented, faith-filled college graduates to enter formation as beginning teachers. Over the course of two summers and two academic years, ACE teachers earn a cost-free Masters of Education from the University of Notre Dame and eligibility for state teaching licensure. Our teachers also live in small communities of 4-8 members, all across the country, and together share the many joys and challenges of early teaching.

Seton Teaching Fellows
This program is a one-to-two year, full-time teaching fellowship for recent college graduates committed to our mission—to helping underserved children whose families cannot afford a Catholic education make it to college and heaven. Fellows are faith-filled and hard-working leaders who are Christ-centered models of virtue, have a heart for serving the poor, and want to help transform communities in need. Fellows help the students and families they serve as well as their peers to know, love, and serve Christ and His Church. Fellows immerse themselves in the community in which they serve--embracing solidarity and simplicity in their mission and way of life. At the same time, they participate in their own holistic formation by accompanying, developing, and challenging each other, striving to serve with the mind, heart, and spirit of Christ the Teacher.
We’re looking for dynamic, faith-filled missionaries who love working with kids and are passionate about serving the poor. We’re looking for selfless leaders who feel called to further the mission of the New Evangelization while living in intentional faith communities.
We believe more than ever that we need to equip young adults to lead young souls to Jesus and His Church. We are looking for Catholics, between 20-29 years old, who want to inspire the faith of thousands of youth. From mid-August to mid-May, SPIRITUS missionaries live in community by gender and travel to schools and parishes giving retreats and programs to Catholic youth in grades 2nd-12th. SPIRITUS also provides lodging, food, a monthly allowance, and health insurance. There is also the opportunity for advancement after the first year. This is an awesome opportunity to serve our Lord in the New Evangelization and help the next generation of Catholics truly encounter Jesus.
