Our Team


Jeanne Haster, Executive Director

Jeanne is in her twelfth year with JVC Northwest as Executive Director.  Her Jesuit Volunteer journey began in 1981-82 when she was a JV in Fort Worth, TX working with undocumented workers, families and women at a Latino community center. Jeanne’s life has been challenged and transformed by many years of living, working with and learning from Indigenous people in Guatemala and Australia and refugees from Central America and around the world; two masters degrees in the Theologies of Justice and Peace from Maryknoll School of Theology in New York; teaching – all ages from post graduate theology courses to middle school social studies; and of course Jesuit Volunteers, Jesuit Volunteer EnCorps members, and former volunteers. JVC Northwest is part of the transformation needed in our world and Jeanne is thrilled and humbled to have the privilege to be part of it!
