An organization with deep roots in the Northwest, it has and continues to transform volunteers and  communities alike. Enjoy a few stories from those who’ve been a part of the 60-year movement of Jesuit Volunteer service.

Fall 2016 Focus
In this Fall edition, we continue to highlight the rich history of the JVC movement- particularly the expansion of JV communities during the 60s and 70s. Barb Gaffney (Fairbanks, AK ’69-70) and Mark Griffin (Portland, OR ’71-73) share experiences from those formative years, and current JV Amanda Peters (St. Xavier, MT ’16-17) reflects on what it’s like to serve during the 60th anniversary. Also in this issue are photos of this year’s 25 JV communities, the 2015-16 Annual Report, and much more.
