Jesuit Volunteer Corps Information Session

Friday, November 5, 3:30pm-4:45pm, Cawley Career Center 

Join members of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC), from staff to current volunteers, to discuss full-time service opportunities available to Georgetown students after graduation. JVC offers a spectrum of full-time placements for one to two years in fields like healthcare, education, housing, legal aid, and social services. Since the organization’s founding, more than 10,000 people—from senators to teachers—identify as Former Jesuit Volunteers, and have dared to change through this transformative experience. 

Discernment Dinner

Thursday, November 18, 6:00pm-7:30pm, register on CampusGroups for event location

Deepen your understanding of how social justice service opportunities can change your life and the lives of those around you. This Discernment Dinner is for Hoyas who are in the early, general stages of discerning if postgraduate service is a good fit. There will be GU alumni and GU staff who have served with various postgraduate service programs sharing about their discernment process at the informal, conversational dinner. 

Discernment Dessert Party

Thursday, November 18, 8:00pm-9:00pm, register on CampusGroups for event location

This Discernment Dessert will be an informal, conversational dessert party for Hoyas who are more certain about pursuing a year (or more!) of service, but are still grappling with questions and want to reflect and discuss in community. GU staff and alumni who have participated in postgraduate service will be present to facilitate these conversations. Light desserts and refreshments will be served.
