Volunteer

JEMfriends’ volunteers serve in many different capacities to keep our program going.  Some are mentors, some give our youth opportunities to intern, others teach life skills classes, many help accomplish awareness events, and still others help in the office.  The opportunities are quite varied, and we strive to place each volunteer in the area of service that best fits them.
