July 5-12 Podcast

Kerry Weber talks about her year with Mercy Volunteer Corps.
Applications to religious volunteer programs have risen dramatically this year as a result of the shrinking job market. In "Will Work for Free," assistant editor Kerry Weber looks at how the influx of volunteers and the poor economic conditions are affecting programs like the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. On our podcast Kerry discusses why she chose to spend a year with the Mercy Volunteer Corps after graduating from college and what spiritual lessons she learned from the sisters of Mercy and the families she worked with on an Indian reservation.
