May 8, 2018 - The Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC), the largest lay Catholic full-time volunteer program in the world is searching for a new president. For more than 50 years, JVC has engaged passionate young leaders in the fight for social justice, while allowing them the opportunity to explore their spirituality and faith through a framework of Catholic, Ignatian values. Since its inception, over 10,000 women and men have dedicated a year or more of their lives to serve among the poor and marginalized while living in community with fellow volunteers. Every Jesuit Volunteer’s (JV’s) experience is different, but the four core values of JVC – spirituality, community, simple living, and social justice – set JVC apart from other service organizations and continue to transform the lives of JVs.
