New Family Volunteering Opportunities (Coming soon!)
Back in 1892, volunteers were the backbone of Jewish Family Service. The same is true today. Over the years, our community has donated well over 2.1 million hours to assist those with needs here at home.
JFS Volunteer Services coordinates numerous rewarding and meaningful activities for people of all ages throughout the year. Here are some ways you can help:
- Big Pals / Little Pals
Designed for children from families seeking an additional adult role model, the Big Pal / Little Pal Program matches children with fun and responsible Jewish adults.
- Companion Services
Discover the satisfaction that comes from making an important difference in the life of an isolated and lonely older adult or a person with a disability.
- ESL Tutoring
Assist or teach English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, or provide individual English tutoring in the home.
- Food Bank Program
There's incredible and rewarding satisfaction that comes from feeding hungry people. Volunteers play an essential role in food distribution, collection, shelving, bagging and home delivery year-round.
- Holiday Baskets
Individuals and groups collect food and small gifts, fill baskets and/or deliver the baskets to seniors and people with disabilities each year at Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah, Purim and Passover.
Become an intern at our offices in Seattle, Bellevue, or Kent and experience working in an acclaimed social service agency that alleviates suffering, sustains healthy relationships and supports people in time of need.
- Refugee & Immigrant Services
Assist or teach English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, provide individual English tutoring in the home, mentor new immigrants, create and/or lead informational workshops for immigrants.
- Youth & Family Volunteering
Arrange a food drive, hold a fundraiser, help seniors, make holiday cards or gifts, collect grocery bags for the food bank, help at JFS events (i.e., food sort or holiday baskets) or create your own project.
Help with Mitzvah Days, the Mom2Mom Project, childcare, camp counselors, office work or at Shaarei Tikvah events. Visit www.jfsseattle.org/vcurrent.html for upcoming volunteer events.
