Family Volunteer Opportunities

HOH5

JUF Young Families partners with the Tikkun Olam Volunteer (TOV) Network to offer one-time volunteer opportunities that match up families with local agencies. We aim to provide families – moms, dads, grandparents, and kids - with meaningful and age-appropriate opportunities to take part in tikkun olam (repairing the world) together. Most volunteer opportunities are geared towards families with children ages 8 and under, yet certain projects may have additional age restrictions. Projects are all part of TOV Mitzvah Mania.

Your family can also be a part our larger community-wide volunteer programs, PJ Gives Back!  Events feature volunteer projects for all ages.
