Volunteer Program

Rostro de Cristo forms young leaders who believe deeply that we belong to each other. A vision made concrete by serving others and sharing faith in community. The Rostro de Cristo Volunteer Program invites young people from the United States to walk alongside the people in Ecuador through one to two years of service. Volunteers immerse themselves in the local community, support a local organization, live in intentional community together, and are guided by the values of the Gospel. With an emphasis on cultivating connections and relationships, volunteers seek to live out the mission of Rostro de Cristo in a concrete way in the outskirts of Quito, Ecuador. Rostro volunteers are, and become, spiritually grounded people who practice cultural humility and understand that solutions will be found when working with others as partners and giving space for the voices not often heard.
