Jesuit Volunteer Community: Britain
Every year, JVC volunteers give over 20,000 hours to projects supporting people in acute need in Britain, working to improve the lives of people who are living in poverty and deprivation right alongside us, too often unseen and inconvenient.
The cost of running our programmes is about £14,000 for each year volunteer and £1,500 for every summer volunteer. This covers housing and travel costs during the programme; a modest allowance for personal expenses, food and household bills; residential events enabling volunteers to reflect on and explore their experience; a spiritual retreat; individual mentoring and group facilitation.
JVC volunteers are remarkable people doing valuable work which not only benefits local communities, but provides a range of skills and experience to equip them to meet life’s challenges.
Please consider a donating at least £5 a month (or equivalent in your own currency) to help a young person take up this valuable service.
