Serendipity recruiting two JVC/AmeriCorps members!

We are so thankful for Sara’s service this year. This is Serendipity’s first year hosting a JVC/AmeriCorps member and we’ve been so impressed by all aspects of the program that we plan to host two JVs (Jesuit Volunteers) next year!

We are very grateful to have Sara in the role of Garden Assistant where she’s building the capacity of our wellness program by co-facilitating hands-on lessons in our garden and teaching kitchen. The interview process, led by JVC Northwest, seamlessly matched Sara’s background and interests with Serendipity, where she’s able to observe both classroom staff and specialists at work as well as participate in on-going school-wide professional development training.

Sara, Serendipity’s current JVC/AmeriCorps Garden Assistant, works alongside a student in the Growing Minds Garden.

We are actively recruiting two more full-time service volunteers to join us during the 2023-24 school year! JVC Northwest is an AmeriCorps program that responds to local community needs in the Northwest by recruiting, placing, and supporting volunteers who provide value-centered service. JVC applicants are interested in addressing pressing community needs and creating a lasting impact across the Northwest. The JVC members, upon being matched with Serendipity Center, will work alongside educators, clinicians and program staff committed to providing a therapeutic environment where students can heal, learn and thrive. Members will also receive a living stipend, communal housing, health insurance, and $6,895 towards education or to pay back student loans.

Service begins in August 2023.
