The Cristo Rey Jesuit Volunteer Program connects men and women who wish to serve in an innovative educational environment for a low-income, Hispanic community. The CRJV Program was founded in 1999 in response to the extensive needs of Cristo Rey and has grown to be a vital aspect of delivering quality, affordable education to our students. Our volunteers are recent university graduates who demonstrate a commitment to social justice, spiritual and personal growth, and intentional community living.
Volunteer responsibilities are matched based on the school's needs and the volunteers’ areas of interest. Placements could include: classroom teacher, campus minister, retreat leader, college counselor, admissions officer, athletic coach, extracurricular moderator, and more. Driving students to their corporate work-study jobs in an essential need of the school and all volunteers are asked to drive once daily. Volunteers live in an intentional community near the school in Pilsen.
After graduation, consider joining Cristo Rey as a Jesuit Volunteer and make a meaningful impact while gaining real-world work experience.
