Children & Teens
JFCS is committed to providing leadership and growth opportunities for children and teens through meaningful volunteer experiences that form connection to community and develop a lifelong sense of responsibility to serve.
We have programs and opportunities for young people of all ages so they can get involved and see the impact of their efforts.
Volunteer opportunities for children and teens:
B’NAI MITZVAH PROJECTS
Pre-teens looking to fulfill service hours in preparation for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah can take part in a variety of volunteer activities. Opportunities include grocery delivery to homebound clients, clothing drives, virtual volunteering, and building relationships with older adults. B’nai Mitzvah students can explore different volunteering opportunities or engage with a single service project to create a meaningful connection with programs and clients. For any young person preparing for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
TEEN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM (TEP)
This program for Jewish teens allows them to explore the meaningful and critical work that we do at JFCS through volunteering opportunities. TEP focuses on philanthropy and giving back as a way of life, instilling these values at a young age to plant the seeds for a future generation of leaders. Teens learn about philanthropy and how each department operates, embark on fundraising projects, and allocate money raised to various programs at JFCS.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES OF ALL KINDS
Children and teens collaborate with programs like Our Closet and People Living with Disabilities in a welcoming and inclusive environment. Young people form new relationships in a space which fosters inclusion and creates a sense of community.
In addition, many of our ongoing volunteer opportunities are open to children and teens, including grocery delivery and sorting clothing donations. To see a full menu of upcoming volunteer opportunities, visit: Volunteer Hub.
