Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS)
The Seattle Mennonite Voluntary Service (MVS) unit is associated with 2 local Mennonite Churches, Seattle Mennonite Church and the Evergreen Mennonite Church. The MVS program is a bi-national service program with over 30 locations throughout the US and Canada.
Volunteers live in a large house located in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle. Volunteers with the MVS program agree to serve at least 1 year with a non-profit organization in social service jobs. They live in community sharing meals, and a commitment to a lifestyle of simpler living.
