Our stories and updates are thoughtfully cataloged over the course of a given program year within our annual JVC Magazine which serves as a formal thank you to all of our supporters, outlines our upcoming commitments and celebrations, and reflects on the impact of our mission and values. 


With Advent upon us, we want to send you the gift of an interactive Advent calendar to celebrate the Christmas season. Each week follows the 4 JVC values: spirituality, social justice, community, and simple living. We hope you share this with your friends and family to use as a reflective tool in the coming weeks.

    This year has been like no other. The COVID-19 global pandemic has radically changed how we engage with each other.

  • Semana Santa (Spirituality): JVs Hannah Petersen and Faith Kersey-Bronec walk in the Semana Santa procession, an important part of the Easter celebration in Peru. These processions walk the stations of the cross in local neighborhoods, stopping at different houses which have been designated as stations of the cross. There, families read a prayer and ask for a blessing of their home.
