LVC places recent college graduates (“Volunteers”) in full-time service positions at social-justice organizations across the United States in Baltimore, Minneapolis, Omaha, St. Paul, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington, DE — for one or two years. Service-year Volunteers are encouraged to explore LVC’s core principles: living simply and sustainably in intentional community while serving the cause of peace with justice. LVC places emphasis on the injustice of racism, oppression, and privilege in its leadership development curriculum; and Volunteers develop broad leadership skills while being placed with food justice, legal aid, environment, housing, immigration, education, health care, and other missions.
The LVC Hike-Athon supports the organization and our volunteers/fellows. LVC funds everything for our volunteers/fellows, except for personal expenses. All donations support the experience of our volunteers/fellows.
