Your commitment to the values of JVC didn’t end when your term of service did. Neither should your JVC experience.
Use this page to connect with thousands of Former Jesuit Volunteers (FJVs) who have gone on to build a more just and hopeful world in their careers, families, and communities. You can also keep up with JVC through our publications and let us know how you’d like to be involved in supporting current JVs.
