60 years of Jesuit Volunteers: JVC Northwest

We recently celebrated the 60th Anniversary of JVC Northwest and the service of Jesuit Volunteers. An organization with deep roots in the Northwest, it has and continues to transform volunteers and  communities alike. Enjoy a few stories from those who’ve been a part of the 60-year movement of Jesuit Volunteer service.

Focus: the bi-annual print newsletter of JVC Northwest

Connecting the JVC Northwest community through reflections and updates from current and former Jesuit Volunteers, board, staff, and news from the JVC Northwest programs.

In this Fall edition, we showcase the ways current and former JVs practice community in their service placements and in their homes. Annie Zwaschka (Bethel, AK ’17-19) writes about the Bethel community and her decision to serve a second year there. Former JVs Ann Naffziger (Woodburn, OR ’95-97) and Sinclair Ceasar (Gresham, OR ’09-10) reflect on ways they continue to find and maintain community today; Kevin Glackin-Coley, (Tacoma ’84-85) describes how he found community in Tacoma. Find community photos from our 2018 Orientation, read about our new JV EnCorps community in Vancouver, WA, read our Annual Report, and as always, celebrate milestones, births and lives well-lived in our Crossroads section.
