International volunteers and task force

Are you ready to serve?

Many Union College students choose to take a gap year away from campus to continue their educations in strikingly different contexts, exploring both what it means to serve and lead. Wherever you go, whatever you find to do, international volunteers and task force workers shares two traits when they return: they've learned to see the world differently, and they understand themselves more deeply. 

Application process

Pick up and turn in a pre-application in Campus Ministries (located in the first floor of the Everett Dick Building). A student missions director will contact you and coach you through the rest of the application process from there. Contact the missions directors at if you have any questions.
