Jesuit Volunteer/AmeriCorps member

A Year of Service with JVC Northwest

Step into an unforgettable year of service and community in the Pacific Northwest! As a Jesuit Volunteer, you will respond to local needs in one of 20 locales across five states. It’s your chance to make an impact in the lives of others while developing new skills and gaining a fresh perspective on what it means to be part of a community.

As an AmeriCorps member, you'll earn a modest living stipend and a $6,345 education award to use towards future tuition or to pay back qualified student loans.

What You'll Do

Service with JVC Northwest is grounded in our four values: Community, Social and Ecological Justice, Simple Living, and Spirituality/Reflection. We promote peace and structural change alongside our community partners. We serve children, elderly, LGBTQ+ youth, immigrants, refugees, Native American and Alaskan Natives, survivors of domestic violence, and those who are without stable housing or access to nutritious food. We teach about conservation. We learn how to live well within our local ecosystem and we invite others to do the same. 

Living in Community

We live in community with fellow Jesuit Volunteer/AmeriCorps members. Surrounded by the beauty of the Northwest, our homes are in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Idaho. Together, we learn to live simply and sustainably while also reflecting upon our experience through the context of service and community life. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We welcome volunteers of all religious backgrounds and faith perspectives. We are committed to equity and inclusion – within our programs, policies, and practices. We continually seek to cultivate an anti-oppressive organization, minimize barriers to service, and actively support diversity and inclusion of all Jesuit Volunteers/AmeriCorps members.
