Pozez JCC’s Volunteer Services Launches

We are a community of action. As a community, we are committed to repairing the world — starting here in Northern Virginia. When a need is identified, time and time again, our community has shown that it understands the value of working together to make a lasting impact.

To that end, we are proud to announce the launch of Pozez JCC’s Volunteer Services program—inspired by our community’s commitment to the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Gemilut Hasidim (acts of loving kindness). These are two Jewish values that inspire acts of kindness, service, and social responsibility.

When developing the Volunteer Services program, it was important that its foundation lead with Jewish values to create a program that unites our community and serves our neighbors and the wider world. Volunteers have already been in many programs in the JCC — from our popular NV Rides volunteer driver program to the intergenerational force that comes out every year to help us prep for the Challah Bake. The Volunteer Services program will build on our community’s rich tradition of volunteering and unite us in service — both within the JCC and in our broader community.

The goal of the program is to have something that inspires everyone — every age, every stage and every interest — to get involved and to feel connected to our community and to each other. To that end, there are a wide array of options and entry points to make participating easy and inviting.

Ongoing positions in our buildings and programs.

If you are looking for a regular (or semi-regular) opportunity within the JCC, we have roles in our camps, fitness, Israel engagement, membership, and much more. These roles are a great way to get involved with our community and create deep connections with our members and staff.

Flexible, Periodic Involvement

Looking for periodic opportunities to serve the community? Perhaps as a way to meet people and give back as you are available?  The program offers ongoing, impactful volunteer events planned with a variety of interests and abilities in mind. These events allow people to meet, engage and serve with only a one-day commitment.

All volunteer opportunities are live on volunteer.thej.org. There are currently 30 opportunities listed, including a “choose your own adventure” option for those with a particular passion or interest. Your talents and skills are welcome!

Please take a look at the opportunities and sign up to become part of our database. We want to harness our community’s diversity of skills and interests to make a lasting impact and connect us to one another. We treasure your suggestions and feedback. Contact volunteerservices@theJ.org to share ideas and/or opportunities you’re interested in. Volunteer Services is your home for service at the Pozez JCC. We believe in the power of community, the strength of unity, and the transformative impact of giving back. We look forward to serving with you!
