Equity at JVC Northwest: 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.

JVC Northwest is committed to continually building a just and equitable workplace in order to work toward our vision of a just and equitable Northwest region. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, JVC Northwest encourages applicants of every ethnicity, origin, age, religion, ability, sexual orientation, gender expression, economic status, veteran status, and political affiliation.

JVC Northwest has been named by Oregon Business Magazine as one of Oregon’s 100 Best Nonprofit Companies to Work for (2009-2018) and 100 Best Green Companies (2010-2019).
