Do you enjoy answering phones and providing excellent customer service? Jewish Family & Community Services has a tremendous need for volunteers interested in clerical and reception work at Jewish Family & Community Services.
The opportunity requires participants to be a self-starter with a willingness to get involved and learn about programs JFCS provides, answer inquiries on the main JFCS phone line, assist with front desk tasks, as needed, and assist clients in a professional and courteous manner. Volunteers may also be asked to do other tasks, such as filing and entering data on a computer. A minimum of two hours should be allotted by the volunteer each time he/she participates this opportunity. Since we do not always know when we will need volunteers to fill this position, sometimes this opportunity can be "as needed," meaning that we may call when front desk receptionists are ill or unable to be at work due to an emergency. Training will be provided.
Volunteers must go through full application process, including background check and fingerprints; Cost is covered by JFCS.
Initial contact: Donna O’Steen email@example.com to make appointment for filling out application and all administrative requirements.

NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
The mission of Jewish Family & Community Services is to strengthen the entire community by providing individual and family social services in the Jewish tradition of helping people help themselves.
Jewish Family & Community Services, Inc. (JFCS) has been a vital part of the Jacksonville Community since 1917, lending a helping hand to people from all walks of life. JFCS has changed the lives of thousands on the First Coast, from the young to the aged, the hurting, the lonely and the lost. JFCS just celebrated 100 years of service to Northeast Florida, and we remain true to its mission to "strengthening the entire community by providing family and individual social services in the Jewish tradition of helping people help themselves."
JFCS provides the ENTIRE community with family-centered services designed to strengthen the skills necessary for self-sufficiency and well-being. The Agency's six core programs work together to protect at-risk children, keep families together, prevent homelessness, feed the hungry, help struggling students succeed and strengthen the coping skills of emotionally distressed individuals and families. JFCS is unique in that, from a single point of entry, clients have access to a number of wraparound services: case management, private adoption, outpatient mental health counseling and assessment, in-home dropout prevention services for middle-school students and their families, life skills education, emergency financial assistance, a food pantry and services designed specifically for the Jewish community - including Holocaust survivors programming.
