Volunteer Opportunities

Nancy Greenberg, Cultural Arts and Senior Adult Director, ext. 232, ngreenberg@worcesterjcc.org

The Adult Department offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. If you have time to spare, we will match your talents to our needs! Volunteers are needed as phone friends, friendly visitors, nursing home visitors, drivers, foster grandparents, mailings, hostesses at congregate meals, nursery school aides and more. If you would like to be involved call Nancy Greenberg at extension 232.

While you provide valuable service, you'll make new friendships, develop new skills and, perhaps most important, experience the satisfaction that comes from helping others. You decide when you're available. Whether it's one evening a week, once or twice a month or only a single day, we need your help. Tell us about your special interests, your skills and the type of work you might enjoy. Maybe you have no idea what you'd like to do. That's fine, too. Here are some suggestions...

Driver: Transport people to appointments.
Escort: Accompany a senior to an appointment.
Foster Grandparent: Visit a child or teenager for an hour each week.
Friendly Visitor: Visit an isolated elderly person in his/her home for an hour each week.
Host/Hostess at Congregate Meals: Set-up, serve and clean-up from twice-weekly Congregate Lunch program at Bet Shalom.
Man Talk Volunteer: On Tuesdays, help set-up, serve and clean-up from breakfast for weekly mens' group. 
Nursery School Aide: Visit and assist JCC and Temple Emanuel Nursery Schools for 3 hours each week.
Nursing Home Visitor: Visit Jewish residents in an area nursing home for an hour each week.
Phone Friend: Make daily reassurance phone call to an isolated elderly person.
Senior Reader: Visit and read to kindergarten and first-grade students 1 hour each week.

"The ride program of the JCC volunteer department has been an important part of my life. The volunteer drivers have given me rides over the years to scheduled doctors’ appointments. When I unexpectedly needed a ride to the pharmacy or lab, Sue Granoff made every effort to provide me with a ride asap.

The drivers are considerate and helpful. I have not found any other program like this in Worcester for those of us who don’t drive due to the infirmities of aging or temporary or chronic disabilities.

This service has definitely made my life easier. I hope the program is around for many, many years. 

Thanks to Sue and the drivers."
