What is Post-Graduate Volunteer Service?

All of us are called to serve our community throughout our lives. For some of us, committing to a full year or two of service after college is a great way to practice that commitment. Ever heard of Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC)? AmeriCorps? Those -- and many more -- are all post-graduate volunteer programs.

Post-graduate volunteer programs offer people the opportunity to commit an extended period of time to serving communities in need. From a few months to 2 years, you can volunteer your talents to full time! These programs help you give to your community, but they also help you build skills, explore a possible career, gain experience, and deepen your faith.
