Since JVC started as a grassroots group of volunteers in Alaska in 1956, more than 12,000 women and men have been transformed through their JVC experience.
Because of the extensive network of Former Jesuit Volunteers, there are opportunities offered specifically to Jesuit Volunteers after completing their service term.
- You may be eligible for scholarships or specialized graduate programs
- You can connect with FJVs in cities across the U.S., so you have a community of supportive people to help you when you move, are looking for a job, or need advice on finding a great farmer's market.
- As a program founded on the Jesuit principles of Ignatian spirituality, JVC can offer you a chance to build relationships with Jesuits in many cities and locations around the world.
There may be FJVs living near you, or working on your campus. When deciding if JVC is right for you, it's helpful to speak to someone with someone who has lived it.
Contact your local recruiter and we'll help connect you with someone from our JVC network to speak with you and answer your questions.
