Description

Jesuit Volunteers address pressing needs in Northwest communities by providing direct service to people on the margins of society and in fragile ecosystems. Volunteers are placed in a variety of schools, social services, community health centers, legal clinics, and environmental and public agencies. They serve marginalized communities, including individuals experiencing homelessness, hunger, additions, disabilities, and abuse, as well as at-risk youth, immigrants and refugees, Indigenous peoples, and Latinx communities.

Throughout the year, members live in community with other JVs and JV AmeriCorps members, learn to live simply and sustainably, and share in reflecting on their experience through the context of service and community life. JVs experience the rugged beauty of the Northwest region while living and serving in urban centers and rural communities. Our organization, including members, staff, and board, strive to live out the four values of community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality/reflection.

Placements are based on matching applicants’ skills and talents with the needs of the community. A wide array of placements exist.

JVs 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.
