Experience Making A Difference!

Through the Ignatian Volunteer Corps, hundreds of people are choosing to put their leadership experience, skill and wisdom into service for others.

The Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) provides men and women, most age 50 or better, opportunities to serve others and transform lives. IVC matches the talents and skills of experienced adults with the greatest social needs of our time. Volunteers serve in 18 metropolitan regions across the country.

IVC works in partnership with hundreds of community partner organizations. These nonprofit organizations provide Ignatian Volunteers with substantive work to serve individuals and families seeking to overcome the challenges of poverty. And hundreds of community organizations are on waiting lists to get an Ignatian Volunteer. The need is great, and we’re here to respond!

IVC works with youth, families and the elderly to change lives.


IVC members are strengthened in their faith by IVC’s unique spiritual reflection program rooted in the Jesuit tradition of Ignatian Spirituality.

By contributing leadership skills and life experience into service, IVC volunteers improve their communities and create a more just society.
