Volunteer

Individuals

Without the help of our volunteers, over 1,000 strong, JASA simply would not be able to offer the wide-range of high-quality services we provide to New York's seniors. From teaching classes and offering lectures at senior centers to clerical assistance and community outreach, your time and effort help to make sure we accomplish our mission each and every day.

Opportunities are available in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Long Island.
