on the road again…

Twice a year, our JVC Northwest Area Directors leave the office here in Portland to visit each JV community on area visits where they check-in with each JV individually, participate in community activities, and visit placement sites. As Area Directors headed out for their second visit of the year earlier this month, we made them promise not to forget those of us left in Portland–we love hearing tales from the road and look forward to their calls and, most recently, their postcards!

News from around the Northwest:

From the snowy mountains of Montana...
Susan tells us of her journey to visit the JVs so far this January.
From Montana to Yakima...
Jess sends an update to the office during her fall area visit to central Washington.
And occasionally we even get to hear from Alaska Area Director, Danielle, as she visits JVs out in the "Last Frontier."
