Maryknoll Taiwan Volunteer Program

As undergraduates prepare for graduate school and/or begin their professional careers, there usually is a ‘gap’ period of time when they can give of themselves in service to others. This is a perfect opportunity to come to Taiwan to live out the Christian faith and participate in God’s Mission among the people of the world.

Thailand Volunteer Program

In Thailand, volunteers work in varied projects in Bangkok. A minimum commitment of eight weeks is required. Volunteers have the opportunity to work in a number of capacities – teaching English, working with children, visiting prisoners and working with refugees.

Bolivia Mission Volunteer Program

Immerse yourself in mission in the context of this diverse country. You can volunteer for six weeks up to one year, or bring a group of eight-to-15 people for a one-to-three week educational exposure trip.

China Teachers Program

Our China teachers program offers a unique opportunity to share and live out your Christian calling educating young Chinese university students.

The calling of a lifetime

The life of a Maryknoll missioner is challenging, fulfilling, and deeply rewarding. Follow your baptismal call to mission by sharing God’s compassion with the poor, the sick, and people most in need.


Enrich your own vocation, walk-in solidarity with people overseas, and work together with Maryknoll Missioners. We offer US priests and Brothers ordained elsewhere the opportunity to work in overseas missions.
