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 find opportunities to connect with JVC via alumni events, our monthly newsletter, and requests for volunteer engagement and support.
Our Former Jesuit Volunteer Google Group functions as an opt-in listserv available to all FJVs, regardless of current location or location of service. Whether you are looking for a strong hire at your organization or have an extra room open in your apartment, the FJV Google Group is a great place to start. Click here to learn more and join.
This Google Group is maintained by Jesuit Volunteer Corps as a service to connect Former Jesuit Volunteers around the world directly with one another.
