I noticed that JVC Northwest is also an AmeriCorps program. What does that mean if I become a Jesuit Volunteer?

JVC Northwest currently receives AmeriCorps funding through a National Direct Grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service. Every JVC Northwest AmeriCorps member who successfully completes a year of full-time service is eligible to receive an Education Award for $5,750.

While the vast majority of Jesuit Volunteers are AmeriCorps members, some JV positions are not eligible for membership due to federal guidelines specific to their service provided at the placement. Some are also not eligible because JVC Northwest’s AmeriCorps funding is limited to 135 of our 150 placements.

See the AmeriCorps FAQs for more information.
