comic strip wisdom.

Leah, the Recruitment and Alumni Coordinator, would like to share the following:

“I have this familiar Calvin and Hobbes comic strip stuck on the wall next to my desk. Created by the great Bill Waterson, it often catches my eye and brings a smile.  It also serves as a constant reminder that we are all uniquely equipped to make a difference in this world. 


I interact with “normal” people each day who are willing to venture into the unknown and try to make the world better.  One way they choose to do that is through Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) Northwest.   Each person brings their gifts and talents to the communities they serve and in turn, are transformed by the people and places they encounter.  

Applications for the upcoming 2011-2012 service year are available at www.watermelon03.watermelon503.com/~jvcnorth/.  If you or someone you know is considering a year of full-time service, now is a great time to get started on the application to meet the March 1 priority deadline. Take a look for yourself or invite others to learn more about the program and how each person can help make a world of difference!”
