Ignatian Volunteer Corps
Headquartered in Baltimore, Md, the Ignatian Volunteer Corps is a national non-profit organization with regional programs in major metropolitan areas across the country including Omaha.
Ignatian Volunteers are guided through a reflection process based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. This process helps volunteers discover the deeper meaning of the work they do, and to see Christ more clearly as they labor among their brothers and sisters who are poor.
- The IVC experience is ideal for men and women who are retired or semi-retired and desire to make use of their gifts, talents and experience in service to others.
- Volunteers commit to serve one or two days a week for 10 months a year.
- Volunteers spend their time working at local service sites for community organizations also known as IVC partners.
- Volunteers tutor, advance literacy skills, help find jobs and housing and work to overcome poverty.
- Care is taken in matching a volunteer's talents to an organization's needs.
