Be a Volunteer

Thank for your interest in volunteering with Jewish Family Service. Volunteers make our work possible. 

Our volunteer opportunities are flexible to your interests and time constraints. Some volunteers are able to volunteer an hour a month, and some five hours a week; we are grateful for the time you are able to provide, regardless of how little or how much.  

All volunteers will be trained and supervised and can rely on JFS staff for support. All volunteers must undergo a criminal background check. If driving is required, volunteers must have a current Utah driver's license and car insurance.

If you are interested in any of the current volunteer opportunities, email our Volunteer Coordinator Xochitl Juarez or call 801-746-4334. You may also fill out the application here.
