JASANextGen Teens and JASANextGen Young Leaders

JASANextGen is a volunteer advocacy program led by the next generation to educate and advocate on issues relating to older adults. JASANextGenners join monthly meetings to learn about a range of topics from food insecurity to elder abuse, help raise critical funds for our annual JASAEats campaign, take lead in volunteer projects, and participate in mini-internships.

JASANextGen Teens (ages 12-17)  have the opportunity to hone their leadership skills and learn more about different career fields while JASANextGen Young Adults (ages 18-22) focus on career development and networking.

Projects for Both Groups Include:

  • Mini-internships in the fields of development, communications, event planning, volunteer management, and continuing education

  • Interview JASA seniors to help tell the stories of JASA clients

  • Work on social media posts for JASANextGen's social media channels

  • Assist with creating content for JASANexGen's newsletter

  • Create fundraising campaigns to raise money for vulnerable older adults

  • Participate in career development events with JASA staff and corporate partners

  • Lead volunteer event(s) with fellow NextGenners and seniors

  • Start a JASANextGen club at your highschool
