Lutheran Volunteer Corps is a faith-based, full-time service and leadership program operating in 13 cities across the United States. Our mission is to unite people to work for peace with justice. We do this by placing Volunteers in full-time positions at social justice organizations for one year. All our volunteers live together in community and practice simple and sustainable living. LVC partners with non-profit organizations in 13 cities where volunteers will live and work: Baltimore, MD; Wilmington, DE; Washington, DC; Chicago, IL; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; St. Paul, MN; Seattle, WA; Tacoma, WA; Berkeley, CA; Oakland, CA; San Francisco, CA; and Omaha, NE. Volunteers live in intentional communities of 4-7 people.
Members of Lutheran Volunteer Corps unite their time and talents with the time and talents of society's marginalized people. LVC Volunteers work in such areas as AIDS/HIV, addiction and recovery, anti-racism, children and youth, community development, education, employment, the environment, food and hunger, LGBTQ rights, health care, housing and homelessness, immigration and refugees, international solidarity, legal assistance, peace, and more.
LVC Volunteers receive a stipend which covers housing, food, transportation, health insurance, and personal expenses. A weeklong orientation and multiple retreats/workshops are also an integral part of the program. Volunteers are guaranteed two weeks of paid vacation. Volunteers receive support from a full-time Regional Director who assists the volunteer with concerns and questions regarding their placement and community.
 
LVC is on a Journey to an Inclusive Community, forming and strengthening alliances among people of many cultures and communities, and intentionally dismantling racism within LVC, the church, and society. As a Reconciling in Christ organization, LVC welcomes and encourages the participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people in all aspects of LVC.
LVC volunteers come from a wide variety of faith backgrounds, and do not need to be Lutheran. Married and committed partners are welcome to apply. While there is no upper age limit, volunteers should be at least 21 to participate. The program begins in mid-August of each year. The application deadlines are January 15 and April 1.
