Volunteer Services
(215) 698-9950

Somewhere in the Greater Philadelphia area, perhaps in your very own neighborhood, there's a child, a disabled person, a family or an older person who needs your unique skills and talents…

JFCS volunteers play an integral role in providing a wide variety of services to clients. Opportunities include tutoring (teachers and reading specialists are especially needed); befriending a child in need of a "big brother" or "big sister"; becoming a volunteer grandparent in our Project JOY program (for children in need of that special love and attention that only a grandparent can provide); visiting or shopping for an elderly person or other homebound person or taking an elderly or disabled adult shopping, on outings, or to appointments; visiting Jewish adults who reside in boarding homes; helping a newly arrived refugee family from the former Soviet Union to acculturate; providing and delivering a "Shalom Basket" to a New American family; helping staff with office tasks; befriending an adolescent or adult with a developmental disability; assisting professional staff Sunday afternoons with social programs for adults and children with developmental disabilities; and providing agency clients with Passover and Thanksgiving baskets and Chanukah gifts. 

There are opportunities to volunteer as individuals, as families, or as a group. Several types of training programs are conducted for volunteers throughout the year, some for all agency volunteers and others for volunteers who work in a particular area of service.
