JVC Magis

JVC Magis

The term Magis is a key element of Jesuit Spirituality, inviting us to do more and to become more. Any former volunteer from JVC (Jesuit Volunteer Corps) or JVC Northwest, may apply for this formation program.

JVC Magis provides a unique opportunity to live out Jesuit ideals. Participants are able to put these ideals into action in both the agencies in which they work and the communities in which they live. JVC Magis participants embody the Jesuit ideal of being people with others through dedication to their agency and community. 


JVC Magis is for dedicated people seeking meaning in their life who want to:

  • work in the city of Chicago in a program partner Catholic Agency. 
  • explore the values of spirituality, sustainable living, community, social justice, anti-racism. 
  • earn a Master's Degree in one of the following areas: social work, pastoral studies, divinity, social justice, spirituality.

Any former member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, or JVC Northwest, may apply for the JVC Magis program. Participation in any other type of program, while similar to JVC, does not fulfill this requirement.
