The worldwide Jesuit network includes an array of organizations, from outreach to refugees on the margins to Ignatian justice organizations to education and volunteer networks.
Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities
The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) is a national organization based in Washington, D.C. whose mission is to serve its member institutions, the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, through programs and resources that support their Jesuit mission and identity. The Association serves as a facilitator for various cooperative initiatives such as fostering Jesuit, Catholic identity and institutional and international collaboration, representing the interests of Jesuit higher education before Congress, supporting leadership programs, and educating for a faith that does justice.
Christian Life Community
The Christian Life Community is an international association of Christians: men and women, adults and young people, of all social conditions, who want to follow Jesus Christ more closely and work with Him for the building of the Kingdom. Members make up small groups, which are part of larger communities organized regionally and nationally, all forming ONE World Community. The CLC is present in all five continents, in almost 60 countries.
Ignatian Solidarity Network
The Ignatian Solidarity Network promotes leadership and advocacy among students, alumni, and other emerging leaders from Jesuit schools, parishes, and ministries by educating its members on social justice issues; by mobilizing a national network to address those issues; and by encouraging a life-long commitment to the “service of faith and the promotion of justice.

Jesuit Refugee Service/USA

JRS services are made available to refugees and displaced persons regardless of their race, ethnic origin, or religious beliefs.
