Service-year Volunteers are encouraged to explore LVC’s core principles:  living simply and sustainably in intentional community while serving the cause of peace with justice.  LVC places emphasis on the injustice of racism, oppression, and privilege in its leadership development curriculum; and Volunteers develop broad leadership skills while being placed with food justice, legal aid, environment, housing, immigration, education, health care, and other missions. The Lutheran Volunteer Corps is a community of faith uniting people to work for peace with justice.
