For over 40 years, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps has worked to build a more just and hopeful world by placing young leaders in vital service with poor and marginalized communities. This is no small task. Each year, we recruit and support over 200 volunteers, coordinate with over 150 partner agencies, and provide meaningful engagement to over 10,000 alumni and donors.  


We rely on passionate and creative professionals to further this mission. Many of our employees are former Jesuit Volunteers, while others are drawn to us as a justice organization at the front lines of social change. Our team is mostly distributed across a couple of states, but we also have some full-time employees who work out of one of our offices in Baltimore or Detroit. A handful of staff are part-time volunteer support staff and they live and work in cities where we place volunteers.  


We pray together twice a week and gather monthly to discuss our individual and departmental Anti-racism goals.


As an organization committed to advancing racial equity and inclusion, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps encourages applications from candidates of all ages, races, classes, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, languages, and physical abilities.


If you or anyone you know would be a good match for the roles below, we’d love to hear from you.
