Young People Gain the Experience of a Lifetime

Overall Goals

Dancing the night away at the annual Senior Prom

The junior volunteer corps at Montefiore is a vital and exciting component of our overall volunteer opportunities. Care for the aging Jewish and general population is a growing concern for future leaders. The junior volunteer program exposes young people to the rewarding aspects of such work. It helps develop leadership skills among young people ages 12 to 18.

Our junior volunteers gain a greater understanding of the needs of the aging community by enhancing the lives and providing care and services to this important population. Here at Montefiore we are placing young leaders and volunteers in a Jewish environment committed to caring, compassion and customer service.
