Community Service For High Schoolers

JARC has a number of ways for high schoolers to gain meaningful volunteer experience while fulfilling requirements for high school graduation and National Honor Society membership.

 

  • Person-to-person volunteers work directly with the individuals JARC serves, sharing their time and friendship.  Whether you take a walk, run an errand, or just share a cup of coffee and conversation, you can make a tremendous difference in someone’s life.

 

  • Special skills volunteers share a particular talent or area of expertise with individuals served by JARC.  If you know a lot about something – computers, music, sewing, cooking, and more – you have something to teach or contribute to a person with a disability.

  • Office volunteers assist with general administrative duties at the JARC office.

 

  • Judaic volunteers share their love of Judaism with their friends from JARC, perhaps by gathering for a Shabbat dinner,                                                               celebrating a holiday, or with Judaic programming.

 

The Student Volunteer Consent Form must be completed before service begins.
