Long-term Volunteers sought

Glenmary Home Missioners is looking for two individuals interested in joining us at our Glenmary Volunteers on Joppa Mountain site located in Grainger County, Tennessee. These long term Volunteers or Mountain Managers operate the Glenmary Volunteers on Joppa Mountain mission immersion program.

Glenmary's long-term volunteers act as a catalyst to volunteer groups serving with Glenmary's Group Volunteer Program on Joppa Mountain (Toppa Joppa) and to those living in Tennessee's Grainger and Union counties. They not only help serve the needs of the poor living in these counties, but also the needs of the volunteers who come from a multitude of places in the United States to serve at Toppa Joppa. The time volunteers spent at Toppa Joppa is a unique experience, one that allows the volunteer to see the growth of individual volunteers and be a part of the life of this Appalachian region. Those who work at Toppa Joppa try to illuminate problems in the areas of social justice to live simply in community.

Glenmary provides long-term volunteers with an opportunity to live these simple values away from the hectic pace of society. Glenmary provides room, board, a stipend, and health insurance to long-term volunteers. We ask that all long term volunteers be 21 years and older.
