Jesuit Volunteer/AmeriCorps Member Position

Position Description:

Engage in a meaningful year of service and community with JVC Northwest! For one year, Jesuit Volunteer (JV)/AmeriCorps members serve local organizations across the Pacific Northwest, helping them address a pressing community need that they’ve identified.

By living together in intentional community, JV/AmeriCorps members lean on each other for personal growth in the four core values of community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality/reflection.

Roll at Intercommunity Peace & Justice Center: The Youth Community Organizer will help co-create, co-lead, and develop the Youth Action Team program. They will walk with high school juniors and seniors as they build and claim power through learning community organizing skills and working for systemic change. By engaging with our community partners, faith communities, and congregations, the volunteer will work for justice and build something with committed partners.

We are looking to fill the role of Youth Community Organizer with a JV/AmeriCorps member for the 2022-23 service year that begins in August.

All JV/AmeriCorps members will be provided with a living stipend, communal housing, health insurance, potential student loan forbearance, and a $6,495 AmeriCorps Education Award to be used towards future tuition or to pay back qualified student loans.

Service Dates: August 8, 2022 through July 31, 2023

How to Apply: Apply at www.jvcnorthwest.org.
