Connor Joyce, 2018-2019 Volunteer
Graduated from Marist College with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Mathematics.
Before coming to Amigos:
Before volunteering at Amigos de Jesus I was a student with the occasional part time job.
Motivation for Coming to Amigos:
I wanted to leave education and the professional world for a while and find somewhere to live simply and be in service to others. Amigos de Jesús turned out to be the perfect fit with my Catholic identity. The sense of community here has been ideal and fulfilling in every aspect.
My duties at Amigos include teaching math and English to high school age students. Three times a week I run class for ‘kinder’ (preschool) which has the youngest kids in the school. In the ‘hogar’ I work as backup to help with the medical needs of the kids.
