Placement Positions Directory
Each year, Lutheran Volunteer Corps matches 100-115 full time Volunteers with social justice non-profit organizations across the U.S.
This directory provides an overview of placement positions for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 program years. This list does not reflect the exact positions available for a given program year. About 80% of LVC partner placement organizations re-apply each year and we also have new positions each year that may not yet be on this list.
LVC Applicants see 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. Please contact email@example.com if you have particular questions about available positions.
