OPPORTUNITIES IN CATHOLIC EDUCATION
  • Diocese of Cleveland Office of Catechetical Services
  • Jesuit Volunteer Corps, the largest Catholic lay volunteer program in the USA. JVC is a world-wide network of volunteers committed to integrating the four values of community, spirituality, social justice, and simple lifestyle. JVs work for and with the homeless, the unemployed, refugees, AIDS victims, the elderly, street youth, abused women and children, the mentally ill, and the developmentally disabled. The Jesuit Volunteers' work around the world is diverse, but all of the opportunities will challenge you on an intellectual, spiritual and emotional level while providing great work experience for what you will do when your time as a Jesuit Volunteer is over.
