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, and Queens.

Lead a Class or Activity
Our volunteer team can tailor a one-time or ongoing class or activity so you can share your interests and passions with seniors.

Assist at a JASA Program or Event
Provide a friendly welcome, assist with registration, serve lunch, or help with programming at a senior center.

Administrative Support
Help our staff reach as many seniors as possible through filing, organizing mailings, or database entry.

Community Outreach and Fundraising Events
Spread the word about JASA's programs by working with our staff on community outreach and fundraising activities.
