Aspiring to create a more just and hopeful world,
the Jesuit Volunteer Corps engages passionate young people
in vital service within poor communities,
fostering the growth of leaders committed to faith in action.



Every Jesuit Volunteer’s experience is different,
but there are certain shared characteristics
that distinguish our approach to service.
These characteristics 
are reflected in our unique values.




Real service takes courage.
It’s not for the selfish. It’s not for the cynics or the boxcheckers.
The world’s injustices are too vast, and the livesof the poor are too hard.
That’s why JVC isn’t for everyone.
JVC is for the doers. The darers. The carers.
In a culture that values what people have over what they give,
JVC is an opportunity to commit to the dignity and wellbeing of others and let faith ignite in action.
We engage brave young believers in life-changing service,
living and working with those in need to build a more just and hopeful world.
Our promise: an intense year of taking on the world’s uncomfortable challenges,
forging a sense of purpose to guide every year that follows.
JVC is the springboard to a future fighting for what matters.
There’s nothing tougher than transformation. Or more permanent. Prepare to change for good.
