Recent graduate of Saint Leo University, Carson Holton, has embarked on a year of full-time volunteer service with Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) Northwest.
A bit about the JVC program:
As a national direct grantee of the Corporation for National and Community Service, 133 of our Jesuit Volunteers are also AmeriCorps members. Jesuit Volunteers live in urban and rural locations in communities of four to eight volunteers. This year, the JVs work with 107 partner agencies across the region in many areas, involved in critical social services advocating for domestic violence survivors, nursing in community clinics, teaching and tutoring in schools with Native American children, assisting in shelters, working for food justice issues, and many more important works. Throughout their year of service, JVs focus on four core values–social and ecological justice, simple living, spirituality, and community.
