Volunteer Information and Forms
"What we do during our working hours determines what we have; what we do in our leisure hours determines what we are." — George Eastman
JABA’s Volunteer Services mission is to make a difference in the lives of volunteers and those individuals, programs and agencies who are served.
There are ever-changing volunteer needs at JABA and our community partner sites. Whatever your availability and interests, we will find the right fit for you. Contact us to explore your choices or look at our Immediate Needs for the most up to date list of urgent requests within JABA and at our community partner sites. Have an impact, learn, enrich your life, engage! Choose an area of interest: Community Senior Centers and Adult Care Centers, Building Community, Health & Nutrition or Neighbor to Neighbor.
Minor and Family Volunteers:
JABA welcomes high school students ages 16-18 and families to volunteer. However, opportunities to serve during non-business hours are uncommon. We do occasionally receive some requests for volunteers at Assisted Living facilities. Please check our Immediate Needs to see if there is something that fits your schedule and commitment level.
Court Appointed Community Service:
Reckless driving and drinking under age are the only offenses for which JABA will consider court-appointed community service. Short-term volunteer needs through JABA are uncommon and we cannot provide opportunities for fewer than 15 hours to fulfill requirements.
We are here to support you as you embark on a path of volunteerism. Interested? It’s easy to get started; just sign up now!

For Our Partners
"To be good and to do good, is all we have to do." —John Adams
JABA partners with other nonprofits, schools and health organizations that align with its mission, goals and cornerstones of healthy aging, sustainability and intergenerational programming.
We recruit, screen, train and coordinate placements of volunteers as we support our identified community partners in their aligned mission.
Sites we partner with include schools, long term care facilities, hospitals, food banks, hospices and community centers.
To explore partnerships with JABA for your volunteer needs contact Carleigh Showalter
at 434-817-5226. Please use the reference materials and forms in support of your efforts as a partnering volunteer site supervisor.
JABA's volunteers are enthusiastic, caring, and unique individuals assisting with a wide range of volunteer needs. They find purpose, feel valued and are more connected to the community while giving their time, skills, talents and compassion to fill vital needs. Volunteer
and Live better. Longer.
