Ryan Mildenberger Joins JVC Northwest

Art alum Ryan Mildenberger embarked on a year of full-time service with Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest in the fall of 2013.

Mildenberger will be working at L'Arche Noah Sealth in Seattle. L'Arche Noah Sealth provides three homes and day activities for people with developmental disabilities.

JVC Northwest is partially funded through the AmeriCorps program. This year, JV/AmeriCorps members will serve in 107 partner agencies across the region in many areas, involved in critical social services advocating for domestic violence survivors, nursing in community clinics, teaching and tutoring in schools with Native American children, assisting in shelters, working for food justice issues and other important works. Throughout their year of service, JV/AmeriCorps members focus on four core values – social and ecological justice, simple living, spirituality and community.

Established in 1956, JVC Northwest is an independent, non-profit organization that recruits, places and supports volunteers living in communities across Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

Ryan Mildenberger received a BA in Art from Marylhurst in 2012.
