Young Adult Community Connection

Young ProfessionalsJFCS’ Young Adult Community Connection program provides monthly volunteer opportunities for professionals in their 20’s and 30’s who are looking for a way to contribute, learn, and connect through service and volunteering. Through one-off direct service projects* in JFCS departments, participants meet to volunteer and reflect on social service and action. Service projects range from work in our Foodbank to connecting with the departments and populations that JFCS serves.

For more information and to sign up for an event, contact Tamar Zaken, Outreach Director at [email protected].
