About Lutheran Volunteer Corps

Lutheran Volunteer Corps (LVC) is a national volunteer service program that partners with full-time volunteers and over 120 social justice organizations in 16 cities across the United States. Volunteers provide direct service to the marginalized in society and work on the root causes of poverty and oppression. Volunteers live together in intentional household communities of four to seven people, to deepen their spirituality and encourage simple, sustainable living.

Volunteer placements include schools, environmental organizations, shelters, medical and legal clinics, refugee services, public policy organizations, community organizing organizations, senior service providers and programs for women and youth. Many programs offer the opportunity for hands-on, direct service with people in need. Others ask volunteers to help coordinate, develop and manage projects by fundraising, recruiting volunteers or working with the legal system.


Qualifications: Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Most positions do not require previous experience, although a few prefer volunteers who are fluent in Spanish.
