Volunteer Application Timeline


You're ready to get started!  Here's what to expect.

Start your application

Complete an application online!

Filling out an application for LVC is an invitation to reflect on why you believe the LVC service year or semester is the right opportunity for you. You will complete the Volunteer Application, and should prepare for submitting online by Sneak Peeking below:

  • View the Sneak Peek: Volunteer Application to see the questions on the application before you go online to complete it.  You must complete the application in one sitting, and will not be able to save the application form after completing.
  • View the Sneak Peek: References to see questions before completing online for the applicant.



However, applying by February 15 gives you first pick for Placement positions.  Here's the approximate timeline:

Regardless of when you apply, here's the process:

  • Apply -- by submitting the application and 1-2 references
  • One-hour Zoom screening interview -- for you to share why this program is for you and to review orientation online
  • Approval -- we approve you for the program
  • Top 10 -- choose your top 10 Placement positions and cities
  • Placement Interviews -- interview for positions directly with nonprofit partners
  • Rankings -- you and Placements rank each other
  • Match -- from your rankings we place you with a position
  • Sign -- you and the Placement sign a 3-way contract with LVC for your service term, the Placement pays the Placement Fee and LVC raises the rest for your expenses
  • Enroll -- you fill out paperwork for your participation in the LVC Program
  • Start -- your service term in social justice begins (for the year term in August)!
