Holy Cross recently ranked first in the nation for the most graduates to join the Jesuit Volunteer Corps (JVC) and the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest for a year of service. Thirty-one recent graduates are currently serving those in need by combating such social issues as hunger, homelessness, and domestic violence among others.

Jesuit Volunteer Corps is a service organization that focuses on social justice and Ignatian Spirituality by working in 60 locations internationally. The Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest is a separate but similar entity, which was started in the Oregon Jesuit Province in 1956 and works throughout five states in the united States: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
