Augustinian Volunteers are Catholic men and women who wish to serve God’s people in partnership with the Augustinians and others. The service of the Volunteers is with established educational, social, and health programs and varies according to the needs of the sponsoring site and the individual Volunteer.

The experience of the Augustinian Volunteers is designed to facilitate a person’s desire to serve others. It is also focused on the Volunteer’s personal and spiritual development in the Augustinian tradition. By building and living in community with other Volunteers and forming relationships with local Augustinian Communities, the Volunteers' lives will be enriched as they enrich the lives of others.
