The New Jewish Home is seeking youth volunteers (13-17) who are available after school, weekends, holidays, and school breaks. As a youth volunteer, you will assist with Therapeutic Recreation and/or Religious Life programs. Programs include: BINGO, Arts & Crafts, Games, Religious Services, and Concerts.

Youth volunteers can also provide one-on-one or small group interactions including:manicures, technology assistance (iPad, iPod & computers), card games, dominoes, checkers, chess, writing with or reading to an elder.

If you play piano or another instrument - our elders would love to listen to you perform.
