AC cake at O

This year, JVC Northwest is joining the celebration to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first AmeriCorps members! Those individuals helped create a legacy of national service that continues to make an impact today. Our festivities kicked off at the 2014-2015 JVC Northwest Orientation, where our newest members were introduced to the AmeriCorps team. JVC Northwest wishes all of our newest AmeriCorps members and JV All-Stars the best as they begin their year of service. Thanks for choosing to make an impact!
