TYPES OF SERVICE


Types of Service

One strength of the JVC program is the breadth and depth of the type of work our Jesuit Volunteers (JVs) engage in. There are over 25 ministries, or types of work, represented among our current JV placements. Our JVs today are placed in over 250 different agencies within 37 cities throughout the US, and six countries. Among those partner agencies, 25 percent are Jesuit works. Throughout the interview process, applicants work with staff to discuss their interest, desires and experiences, and how those can best serve where the need is greatest with one of our partner agencies.
