Ignatian Volunteer Corps Information Session

« Back
Online registration for this event has closed. Walk-Ins will be welcomed at the door.

Come learn more about the Ignatian Volunteer Corps (IVC) program. IVC members will share how they use their skills and Loyola education in the service of others.

Meet Pat who mentors young men in the juvenile justice system and ex-offenders in Back of the Yards; Kate who serves as a nurse in Cristo Rey school in Waukegan; Mary Anne who uses her teaching background and law degree in an after school program on the south side; and Jim who uses 35 years of business experience to coordinate work/study programs at Christ the King school on Chicago’s west side.

IVC is a national volunteer and spiritual formation program geared toward retired and semi-retired men and women, ages 50 and older. IVC volunteers serve 2 days per week in poor and marginalized communities and participate in a spiritual reflection program rooted in the Jesuit Catholic tradition. In Chicago, there are 52 IVC volunteers serving in a variety of meaningful ways. Members are in diverse positions of service including tutoring/mentoring at all levels of education, volunteering in food pantries and shelters, ESL and employments programs, hospital chaplaincy and prison ministries, and a range of other social services. Light refreshments will be served.
