JABA Neighbor-to-Neighbor volunteer
It can be lonely and isolating for seniors living at home with no family close by or the means to get around like they used to. Neighbor-to-Neighbor volunteers provide friendly visits, transportation, or home assistance to give seniors the support they need to live safely at home and maintain their independence.
Volunteering at one of JABA's Community Senior Centers
With Centers in Charlottesville, Nelson, Greene, Louisa, Fluvanna, Esmont and Scottsville, there’s sure to be one near you. You’ll bring joy to the lives of our members — and into your own life — by leading and participating in activities involving the arts, crafts, games, music, exercise, and more.
JABA Insurance Counseling volunteer
Navigating the complexities of health coverage can be overwhelming for seniors. Our volunteers help guide them through the process. With Open enrollment for Medicare fast approaching, the need for Counselors is urgent. We’ll also need support staff and data entry volunteers. Your help will have a huge impact on seniors seeking quality health coverage.
FISH stands for Friends in Schools Helping, and its an intergenerational program that matches up an adult with a child in our local school system to serve as a school-based mentor. You’ll help boost the confidence of a child by helping them to succeed in school. This is a very rewarding experience, and you don’t need a background in education to participate.
Training dates are filling up fast, so don’t delay. Call 817-JABA or sign-up online.
