Fourteen College of the Holy Cross alumni have answered the call to serve. They are currently working in locations around the world as Jesuit volunteers. With 11 former students participating in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Holy Cross is the fourth most-represented college nationwide along with Fordham and Marquette. An additional three graduates are serving in Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, which operates independently.
Rooted in the core values of social and ecological justice, simple living, community, and spirituality, the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and the Jesuit Volunteers Corps Northwest programs give young men and women the chance to work full time for justice and peace. Participants serve for one or two years, during which time they live among the poor and marginalized and strive to examine and combat social justice.
Jesuit volunteers work at schools, health clinics, legal clinics, parishes, domestic violence shelters and non-profit organizations in the United States and abroad. Those working in the Northwest also teach in schools on Native American reservations.
The Holy Cross graduates are among 325 Jesuit volunteers living in 39 cities in the United States and six other countries around the world. There are 148 Jesuit volunteers serving in 21 locales throughout the five states of the Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington).
The following graduates are currently serving as Jesuit volunteers:
