Who we are

The Jesuit Volunteers Philippines Foundation Inc. (JVPFI) engages in nation-building by recruiting, training and sending volunteers for a year of service to marginalized communities and areas with the greatest need. Jesuit volunteers empower these communities as teachers, formators, community organizers, or enterprise development officers assigned to under-resourced schools, parishes, and NGOs across the country.


A just society that celebrates the fullness of life realized with the help of a community embodying Ignatian Spirituality.


We aim to form a community composed of volunteers, former volunteers and associates who nurture and live out the principles and values of Ignatian Spirituality embodied in and realized through their individual vocation.

History and Reach

In 1980, nine young Jesuit Volunteers set off to serve in the peripheries of Mindanao. Now on its 38th year, JVPFI has successfully deployed over a thousand volunteers to 335 partner institutions in marginalized communities across the nation, serving where they are needed most.
