The Ignatian Volunteer Corps is proud to partner with local agencies providing services and creating opportunities for those in need.
The volunteers bring with them a culture that fits with our own and model for our employees living their faith in action. In addition to their expertise and assistance with projects, their presence become part of our family and their positive attitude affects the whole organization.

Our volunteers come to work for us and work as hard as any paid employee and as responsibly. Their work ethic and more importantly, their value of service to our brothers and sisters in need is an inspiration to me and a challenge to do more, for which I am grateful.

Our IVC volunteers mean the world to us. They assist teachers with lessons, help struggling students with one-on-one tutoring, and contribute in so many other ways. Their dedication to St. Aloysius School has had a profound impact in our classrooms and on our students.

The greatest gift that our IVC volunteers have contributed to Mercy Center Bronx is joining their skills to their open-hearted embrace of our mission. Each IVC member brings her/his unique quality of service, professional skill and reflective stance as they find God in all things.
