JVC’s Recruiting Team travels the country, sharing their stories, answering questions, and helping future Jesuit Volunteers discern how they’ll dare to change.

Staff travels to campuses and college fairs across the U.S. to talk about JVC as a valuable option for post-graduate life. Take a look at our campus visit schedule to see where our recruiting staff will be next. If your city is not on the list, no problem. Email a team member, and they will be happy to set up a time to talk on the phone. Ask them about day-to-day community life, keeping in touch with family from across the miles, living on a stipend, spirituality nights, or any other questions you may have.
Also, read more about current Jesuit Volunteers in the field in our JV Profiles.

Kevin Breen

  • Kevin served as a Jesuit Volunteer through JVC Northwest in Yakima, Washington. There, he worked with low-income, farmworker families living in affordable housing. Kevin is a graduate of Loyola University Maryland, and spent the Spring of 2013 in El Salvador through la Casa de la Solidaridad. On recruiting trips to upstate New York, Northeastern PA, and Baltimore, you can easily break Kevin’s concentration by bringing up good music, most podcasts, and all forms of fiction. 

Lily Roggenkamp

  • Lily graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2011 and spent a year as a full-time volunteer in New York City, working to help homeless youth recently aged out of the foster care system secure permanent housing. Lily is an LA native, currently calls Northern California home, and considers herself a breakfast burrito/ramen noodle/passport stamp enthusiast. In addition to supporting the JV communities in Berkeley, San Francisco, and San Diego, Lily is excited to continue recruiting for JVC in the great big state of California.

Sean O’Neill

  • Sean graduated from Holy Cross and served as a Jesuit Volunteer this past year in Los Angeles, where he was an employment specialist for homeless and low income individuals at Chrysalis. He loves quoting movies to anyone who will listen, and, while in LA, he spent a lot of time attempting to surf. Sean is excited to meet future Jesuit Volunteers who are getting ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
