Brethren Volunteer Service
New Project Information
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) project site.
When you call Brethren Volunteer Service, you will receive a packet of information that includes a general brochure about BVS, and a current project book and covenant, which is the agreement between a project and BVS. This covenant lists the responsibilities of the project to the volunteer, as well as the responsibilities of the volunteer to the project. Volunteers sign a similar covenant with BVS.
The estimated cost of a volunteer for a 12 month period is $10,000 to $12,000. This includes:
Projects cannot be guaranteed a volunteer even after they become a part of the BVS program. It is not unusual for a project to wait one or two years before getting a volunteer, since BVS has more projects than volunteers. Please consider these factors as you consider whether or not you want to apply to become a BVS project.
Placement of volunteers occurs during one of three or four orientations each year. These orientations are three weeks long.
Contact our office if you have interest in becoming a BVS project.
