More about these examples of LVC positions
Each year, Lutheran Volunteer Corps matches approximately 50 full time Volunteers with social justice non-profit organizations in our program cities across the U.S. The directory below provides a SAMPLE list of placement positions for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 program years. About 80% of LVC partner organizations re-apply each year; and in addition, we will have new positions that are not yet on the list.
LVC Applicants get to see the list of available positions as part of the application and matching process, including more in depth position descriptions.
To have the widest choice of positions, apply by our Round 1 January 15th deadline. There are significantly fewer positions available for the Round 2 April 1st deadline.

All services are provided within the greater Wilmington area and align with the guiding principle, ''the poor should never be treated poorly."
