Ivan Montoya ’19 will serve with Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, an organization of lay volunteers who culturally immerse themselves for a year or more in different communities, working for social justice, while exploring their spirituality and faith through a framework of Catholic, Ignatian values.

And Reilly Rebhahn will join Loretto Volunteers, where she will participate in a year-long program to explore intentional community living, seek spiritual development and work for social change.
