Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) Northwest responds to local community needs in the Pacific Northwest by placing volunteers who provide value-centered service grounded in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. Honoring the Divine at work in all things, we envision the Northwest as a sustainable region where all live in dignity, are treated justly, and actively contribute to their own empowerment and positive change in their communities. JVC Northwest strives to live out the four values of community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality/reflection.
JVC Northwest is grounded in the Jesuit Catholic tradition that propels us to work for equity in our organization and the communities in which our volunteers live and serve. We commit to critically examine our service and presence everywhere, particularly in communities of color, as well as acknowledge and amend the historical injustices of the past.
To be an equitable organization, we must provide meaningful opportunities to those who face the barriers of bias, poverty, and injustice to participate in sharing power. To this end, we intend to create and sustain an organizational culture and structure that welcomes and supports diverse staff, board, volunteers, and partner agencies. We call our constituents into this deep and wide process. This work is core to our mission of social justice. It is the work of grace and reflection of Divine love.
