Volunteer Opportunities

Volun­teer­ing with Jes­sica & Friends Com­mun­ity is an ex­peri­ence that goes well be­yond the in­ves­ted time. It is com­mon for our volun­te­ers to re­mark how the in­dividu­als they as­s­ist end up bless­ing them in ways they never im­agined.

Jes­sica & Friends Com­mun­ity is able to offer many volun­te­er and in­ternship ex­peri­ences. In fact the op­por­tunit­ies are only li­mited by the gifts and talents of our sup­port­ers and the im­agina­tion. Like many non-profits our fin­an­ci­al re­sour­ces are li­mited, so an ac­tive volun­te­er team plays a vital role in help­ing Jes­sica & Friends Com­mun­ity de­liv­er the ex­cep­tion­al ser­vices our in­dividu­als de­ser­ve.

How to Be­come A Volun­te­er

Each poten­ti­al volun­te­er must com­plete a four step pro­cess be­fore volun­teer­ing can begin with our or­ganiza­tion. These steps en­sure the safety of our in­dividu­als and al­lows the volun­te­er to de­ter­mine if our or­ganiza­tion is a good fit with them and their ideas when volun­teer­ing.

1st - Com­plete an applica­tion (Click Here to Download volun­te­er form)
