  • Explore career options

  • Lead a book discussion
  • Plant a garden
  • Lead a singing group
  • Play an instrument
  • Help on outings and field trips

We welcome individuals and groups of all ages. Both adult and junior volunteers may participate in the same opportunities with the only difference being that adults are 18 and older and juniors are 12-18. You must be at least 12 years old to push a wheelchair. Children under the age of 12 must be under the supervision of a parent.

Are there a minimum number of hours I must commit to volunteering?

There is no set time limit–give as much or as little time as you have. Other than a few guidelines, the specifics–duration, days, activities and frequency of your commitment are up to you! Whether you are volunteering for fun, service hours, a mitzvah or church project or simply because you know it is important, we will plan a volunteer schedule that works for you.
