Ignatian Volunteer Corps


Are you called to live out the Marquette University Jesuit tradition of service in the world?

Marquette University is proud to launch a partnership with Ignation Volunteer Corps – Milwaukee.

Through the Ignation Volunteer Corps (IVC), hundreds of people are choosing to put their leadership experience, skill and wisdom into service for others.

The IVC provides men and women, most age 50 or better, opportunities to serve others and to transform lives. IVC matches the talents and skills of experienced adults with the greatest social needs of our time. Volunteers serve in 23 metropolitan areas across the country.

IVC works in partnership with hundreds of community partner organizations. These nonprofit organizations provide Ignation Volunteers with substantive work to serve individuals and families seeking to overcome the challenges of poverty. Volunteer opportunities are broad in scope and can include roles in administration, counseling, legal services, teaching, tutoring, social services, marketing, finance, technology, engineering and others. And hundreds of community organizations are on the waiting list to get an Ignatian Volunteer. The need is great, and we’re here to respond!

IVC members are strengthened in their faith by IVC’s unique spiritual reflection program rooted in the Jesuit tradition of Ignation spirituality.

By contributing leadership skills and life experience into service, IVC volunteers improve their communities and create a more just society.
