The Jesuit Volunteer Corps' greatest impact can be seen in the actions and values of our former volunteers.
Jesuit Volunteers join a community of over 10,000 alumni committed to faith in action. Former Jesuit Volunteers do amazing things: they serve the public interest as members of Congress, found and lead organizations at the forefront of social change, heal bodies and minds as medical professionals, advocate for justice as lawyers and judges, and continue to work with the poor and marginalized.
Here you'll find stories from just a few of the over 10,000 FJVs, transformed by their JVC experience, committed to a life of putting their faith into action.

"JVC’s values continue to provide an integral guide for me to navigate the tumultuous waters of immigration detention and asylum law."
"Now, when I’m working on defending Medicaid or another program that helps people in low-income communities, they are not abstract policy matters. They are more real because of my experience in JVC, working with families who struggled to make ends meet."
“Whether organizing a community meeting around losing section-8 status or advancing legislation within state government, I have connected with people. To this end, I definitely got a great deal of practice and learned a lot from my experience of JVC.”
