JV/AmeriCorps members invest hundreds of hours developing professional and personal skills during their service year. They often discern career and vocational pathways in which to share their gifts and skills beyond the service year. Additionally, they share homes, meals, and the highs and lows of life together, forming deep and often lifelong relationships during their year. Post-service, they join a network of over 7,000 other former JVs who served with our program, and for those who were AmeriCorps members, they join the network of over one million members with whom to network and connect.
