Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international Catholic organisation, at work in more than 50 countries, which has a mission to accompany, serve and defend the rights of refugees and displaced people. Established by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1980, JRS is a worldwide network of associates and institutions of this Catholic religious order. It serves refugees, offering them practical and spiritual support, according to their humanitarian needs, regardless of their beliefs.
Who can join JRS?
JRS seeks volunteers and staff who share its vision of accompanying refugees and who are prepared for its complex tasks. JRS volunteers and staff may be lay persons, Jesuits or members of a religious congregation. JRS seeks specialists in education, counselling, rehabilitation, management and related fields, and especially with experience in training others. There are also needs for people with technical skills, especially in communication, law, agriculture and small-scale development work.
What qualities does JRS require?
In addition to the obvious desire to serve refugees and asylum seekers, human maturity, considerable flexibility of temperament and a capacity to understand refugees and their circumstances without losing objectivity, these five qualities are essential:
- commitment to training others,
- capacity for teamwork and community living,
- acceptance of a simple lifestyle,
- openness to share in a faith journey,
- precise professional expertise to offer.
