Lutheran Volunteer Corps is a faith-based, full-time service & leadership program operating in 8 cities across the U.S. Our mission: to unite people to work for peace with justice.

All our Volunteers live together in intentional community, practicing simple & sustainable living, while exploring spirituality. LVC offers all Volunteers housing, living stipend, health insurance & 2 weeks’ vacation.
