JVC Northwest values the thoughts and opinions of our constituents. As we look ahead to the future and plan our growth as an organization, we are asking our greater community to provide input.

JVC Northwest Mission and Vision Statement
Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest responds to local community needs in the Northwest by recruiting, placing, and supporting volunteers who provide value-centered service grounded in the Jesuit Catholic tradition.
Honoring the Divine at work in all things, we envision the Northwest as a sustainable region where all live in dignity, are treated justly and equitably, and actively contribute to their own empowerment and positive change in their communities.
