General FAQs

Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) Northwest began its direct partnership with national service through a National Direct AmeriCorps grant in 2010, and was awarded a re-compete grant in 2013, 2016, and 2019, all of which reflect a three year grant cycle. The majority of our placements are AmeriCorps positions.  JVC Northwest AmeriCorps members receive an education award upon successful completion of a year of service.  Members receive a living allowance which funds their housing costs, food, utilities, transport to and from the service site, medical co-pays and deductibles and other costs incurred during the year. Future funding is conditional upon government appropriations and a successful grant award.

How do I know if my position qualifies as an AmeriCorps placement?
Most of our positions qualify for AmeriCorps. Some positions are not eligible for AmeriCorps because they are advocacy and/or ministry positions, and some positions will be non-AmeriCorps due to the fact we have a greater number of opportunities for full-time service than we have AmeriCorps funding for positions. Under the “Where We Serve” section on our website, there is a list of position descriptions; click on the details section to see if a position is an AmeriCorps position or a non-AmeriCorps position.
