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. More than 750 volunteers have given a year or more of service.
In the 2020-2021 service year, 33 LVs are serving in 18 ministries and in 9 states.
“I find that the most effective education happens when that trusting dynamic is present. When I have a more personal relationship with a student, I can tailor my tutoring to that student and their interests, making our work more meaningful for both of us. This is how I try to live out my Lasallian commitment to ‘touch the hearts’ of the people I serve, and I don’t think I can accomplish that without allowing my heart to be touched as well.” — John Taylor, LV 17-19, Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, Brooklyn, New York
