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. Prospective volunteers who are conditionally accepted post-interview will take a survey to determine interest and eligibility for volunteer positions and locations.

Step 3

Prospective volunteers participate in a second interview, either with a JVC placement site or with a JVC staff member. Two-year candidates may be asked to attend a mandatory discernment weekend before final placement offers are made.

Step 4

Successful applicants are matched with a placement site. Those who accept their placement offer begin the on-boarding process, including a welcome call and a mandatory Orientation.

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.
