At Orientation, we provide trainings to all JVs on Intercultural Skills for Equity, along with a Navigating White Spaces training for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) JVs. We also have a mentorship program provided by Former Jesuit Volunteers (FJVs) and JV Encorps members for JVs who identify as BIPOC. In addition to our Spring and Fall retreats for all JVs, we also have two annual BIPOC-only retreats. And as part of JV Identity groups, you can join the BIPOC, Interracial, Mixed Race, White Passing group where you can receive support and engage in meaningful conversation with other JVs who hold similar identities.
