We engage brave young believers in life-changing service,
and working with those in need to build a more just and hopeful world.

Our promise: an intense year of taking on 
the world’s uncomfortable challenges,
forging a sense of purpose to guide every year that follows.
JVC is the 
springboard to a future fighting for what matters.


The application process

Step 1

Create an account through our online application system. Applications (including transcripts and recommendation letters) are due by January 31st.  

Step 2

Initial interviews begin in February, after which you’ll be notified of your conditional acceptance. You’ll then join a group conversation with other conditionally-accepted candidates to further discern your readiness for the volunteer experience.

Step 3

You’ll take a survey to determine your interest and eligibility for volunteer positions and locations. Based on that survey and your discernment conversation, you’ll participate in a second interview with a JVC staff member or placement site.

Step 4

JVC extends a final placement offer. If you accept your offer, we’ll begin the onboarding process to prepare you for summer orientation and your time as a Jesuit Volunteer.  

Be a part of it.

In a culture that values what people have over what they give,
JVC is an opportunity to commit to the dignity and wellbeing of others
and let faith ignite in action.
