SJWP NY is ready to begin year two welcoming three Workers!
The St. Joseph Worker Program creates a year-long service opportunity for women in preparation for a life-long commitment to social change and personal transformation. Individual growth and development is built on the values of leadership, spirituality, social justice and intentional community grounded in living simply and sustainably. Rooted within the spirit of the Sisters of St. Joseph, St. Joseph Workers live the mission: “Love of God and the dear neighbor without distinction.”
This year, the NY program is pleased to welcome three new workers – Benita Amoako, Faith Yusko, and Megan Hryniewicz. Click below to learn about each of them and the ministries they will be volunteering at:

As the SJWP begins its orientation for the 2018-2019 year they will be joined by Ms. Brooklyn Vetter, SJW ’14 (St. Paul) who will join the staff as Associate Director. Ms. Vetter will work alongside S. Theresa Scanlon, CSJ and S. Joan Gallagher, CSJ as they seek to grow the program.
After graduating from Minnesota State University with a BS in Sociology and Gender and Women’s Studies, Brooklyn became a St. Joseph Worker in St. Paul, MN. As a SJW her assigned ministry was at The Lift Garage. This non-profit’s mission is to move people out of poverty and homelessness by providing low-cost car repair, free pre-purchase car inspections, and honest advice that supports the community on the road to more secure lives. Brooklyn’s work was so impressive that the Lift Garage then hired her to be their shop manager.
Change the world, be a St. Joseph Worker!
