The St. Joseph Worker Program empowers women to respond to the needs of the time in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph.

The St. Joseph Worker Program creates a year-long service opportunity for women (21-35) in preparation for a life-long commitment to social change and personal transformation. Individual growth and development are built on the values of leadership, spirituality, social justice and intentional community grounded in living simply and sustainably. Rooted within the spirit of the Sisters of St Joseph, St Joseph Workers live the mission: ” love of God and dear neighbor without distinction”.

  • About Us
    The St Joseph Worker Program is an 11 month (August- June) faith-based service program focusing on the values of Justice, Spirituality, Community with Simplicity and Leadership. Women ages 21-35 who have a heart for justice, a sense of humor and perspective, an open mind, a flexible spirit and an eagerness for a year of growth with all its rewards are invited to apply for the St Joseph Worker Program. Volunteers are matched with a placement site where they serve full-time (36 hours a week), in the areas of public health, immigrant and refugee services, housing and homelessness, direct service and advocacy, and others.
    Weekly Spirituality and Community nights, retreats, social justice opportunities, and other personal development activities help make the year a truly transformative experience. Volunteers form a small intentional community among themselves, living in their own house, and are committed to personal and social transformation. The program founded in St Paul, Minnesota is currently located in Orange, California.
  • Our Impact
    The impacts of this program are two-fold. The first is within the communities we serve, providing support and care for folks in communities with unmet needs. The second impact is on the lives of the young women participating in the program, through leadership development, weekend retreats, community building, and spiritual exploration and deepening.
