Grace Badik, Program Coordinator

Grace is a recent Former Jesuit Volunteer who served two years at Street Roots in Portland, OR, where she built relationships with vendors as they navigated through life and sold an awesome newspaper. She is originally from Ohio, where she also attended undergrad at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. During her undergrad experience, she participated in many unique opportunities ranging from working at an urban summer camp to wandering the streets of Paris doing research on community organizing in Slovakia. Through her undergrad and JV experiences, she’s found that  storytelling, community organizing, and housing issues have become near and dear to her heart. She loves hiking, reading, writing, lying in the sun and just hanging out with folks. Grace is excited to continue her connection with JVC Northwest as a Program Coordinator while accompanying JVs during their year of service.
