Volunteer Program Overview | Marist Brothers Center


The Volunteer Program at the MBCE-MHVC helps to provide individuals from all walks of life with the tools to enhance personal growth and meet personal goals. Volunteers live on-site for an extended period of time and are provided opportunities to develop foundational skills and work towards personal success.

Volunteers make a positive impact on the MBCE’s daily operations by contributing time and talents to programs and completing projects around the buildings and grounds. Volunteers are encouraged to dedicate personal time for reflection and self-exploration within the aesthetic beauty of the MBCE’s property along the Hudson River.

Volunteers contribute to the services of the MBCE by dedicating time and talents to areas such as hospitality, youth ministry, retreats and programming and maintenance projects.
