Carolyn Chu, JV Program Manager


Carolyn is originally from San Francisco, CA and studied Environmental Science at Santa Clara University. As an undergrad, she discovered service and reflection through the Santa Clara Community Action Program and her study abroad experience in El Salvador with Casa de la Solidaridad. She was a JV as the L’Arche Farms and Gardens Assistant in Tacoma, WA, cultivating both plants and relationships with adults with developmental disabilities, and then served an additional year as the JOIN House Coordinator in the Gresham, OR community, hosting a day space for folks living on the streets. Carolyn’s current interests include arts, crafts, comics, board games, and being “Auntie Coco” to her niece and nephews. Carolyn is excited to return to JVC Northwest to accompany JVs during their service year!
