Engage in a meaningful year of service and community with JVC Northwest! For one year, Jesuit Volunteer (JV)/AmeriCorps members serve local organizations across the Pacific Northwest, helping them address a pressing community need.

By living together in intentional community, JV/AmeriCorps members lean on each other for personal growth in the four core values of community, simple living, social and ecological justice, and spirituality/reflection.

Here at Yakima Neighborhood Health Services (YNHS), we are looking to fill the role of Maternity Support Services MSS Nurse with a JV/AmeriCorps member for the 2023-24 service year that begins in August. The Maternity Support Services MSS Nurse will serve in a Community Health Center, along with dietitians, counselors, and community workers to provide assessment, education, and interventions for pregnant women and newborns. The goal of this program is to maximize opportunities for healthy birth outcomes and services to vulnerable residents. The nurse will participate actively in case conferences with other YNHS team members to address the comprehensive needs of the clients. Develop and maintain working relationships with healthcare and social service professionals in the community serving YNHS clients. Work in coordination with other YNHS staff to develop education programs for YNHS clients.

All JV/AmeriCorps members will be provided with a living stipend, communal housing, health insurance, potential student loan forbearance, and a $6,895 AmeriCorps Education Award to be used towards future tuition or to pay back qualified student loans.
