IVC is a unique volunteer organization. It not only provides volunteers with opportunities for meaningful volunteer activities, but also combines this with a distinctive spiritual component. The people who accept the call to become volunteers are assigned to partner agencies. The mission or goal of these agencies is to serve people who are poor in their area.
The Northern Virginia Region is located in the Virginia suburbs of the Washington DC area which includes Arlington, Fairfax and Prince William counties and the cities of Alexandria, Centerville, Falls Church, Fairfax, Vienna, Reston, Herndon and Manassas.
Volunteers in the Northern Virginia Region of the Ignatian Volunteer Corps today number over 35 women and men, all age 50 or better, who share their skills, talents, and life experiences to help meet the needs of people in their community who are poor and to address issues related to poverty. Lawyers, nurses, teachers, managers, labor relations specialists, information technologists, librarians, and social workers are included in the ranks of these volunteers.
