Experience Making a Difference

Welcome to IVC Northeastern Pennsylvania

Here’s our IVC NEPA story in 60-seconds:

Who we are:

IVC is a unique national non-profit organization providing men and women age 50 and better with meaningful opportunities to serve others. IVC also provides membership in a faith-sharing community united by a desire for spiritual development in the tradition of Ignatius Loyola.

What we do:

Conocer a Dios es obrar la justicia – to know God is to do justice

 Inspired to give back and partner with nonprofit agencies working with the poor and disenfranchised, Ignatian Volunteers utilize their inherent gifts and acquired skills to provide hope and stability to individuals and families marginalized by the economic, educational and political realities impacting their lives.

The IVC Difference:

IVC’s communal and spiritual experiences set it apart from other volunteer opportunities. Transformation occurs for Ignatian Volunteers when they serve others and take time to reflect and share with each other about their service experiences.

The Ignatian Volunteer Corps is grounded in the Catholic Ignatian tradition, developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits). We also value and welcome those whose spiritual journey is influenced by other traditions and practices. We believe that richness in community comes from the sharing of diverse spiritual beliefs and practices.

“The Ignatian Volunteer Corps is a wonderful opportunity for those of us who are retired and have the good health and time to do meaningful service. The monthly meetings provide an opportunity for us to reflect with other volunteers regarding the joy of paying it forward.”

Msgr. Joe Kelly Partner Agency Director and IVC Advisory Council Member
