Jesuit Volunteer Corps Non-Discrimination Policy  

JVC does not discriminate in program admission based on race, color, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, disability, or any other protected characteristic.  

JVC is founded and rooted in the tradition of the Society of Jesus. The program has a distinct Roman Catholic heritage, which all applicants will understand is the spiritual foundation of JVC. Yet, individuals of all faith perspectives are welcome and encouraged to apply.  

JVC will make reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with known disabilities as long as the accommodation does not impose undue hardship on JVC or the partner agencies. This policy governs all aspects of the program including selection, placement assignment, compensation and access to benefits and training.  

Discrimination on the part of fellow JVC members will not be tolerated. Anyone found to be engaging in any unlawful or harassing discrimination will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from the program.  

JVC makes every effort to ensure that its placement agencies have similar non-discrimination policies. If the agency partner is found to be engaging in discriminatory activities, removal of current member(s) (and denial of future volunteers at that agency) can result.   

Any volunteer with questions or concerns about any type of discrimination should bring these issues to the attention of the JVC program leadership.
