Mission and Vision Statement
Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest responds to local community needs in the Pacific Northwest by placing volunteers who provide value-centered service grounded in the Jesuit Catholic tradition.
Honoring the Divine at work in all things, we envision the Northwest as a sustainable region where all live in dignity, are treated justly, and actively contribute to their own empowerment and positive change in their communities.
Over the years, the experience of volunteers and their reflection on that experience have been distilled into four values: community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality. JVs make a commitment to the JVC Northwest program and to their service placements to strive to live these four interconnected values.
