Contact a Recruiter
The JVC recruiting team travels the country, sharing their stories, answering
questions, and getting to know future Jesuit Volunteers
Staff travel to campuses and college fairs across the U.S. to talk about JVC as a valuable option for post-graduate life. Read the team bios below and see which cities they will be visiting. If your city is not on the list, no problem, email a team member and they would 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!
