Jewish Family Service

Jewish Family Service is the place for teens to do good in their communities! We offer a variety of volunteer projects for individuals, groups, and families to support our many agency-wide efforts. From supporting individuals experiencing homelessness, coordinating donation drives for programmatic needs, assembling food bags for meal distribution, and advocating for change, JFS is the place to make a positive impact in your community. JFS can provide resources and outreach presentations to help you level up your own community impact projects and ideas. Each year we offer Your Voice, a Youth Activism Conference for youth to learn how to use their voice for good as well as several additional opportunities to engage in youth-driven advocacy and workshops.

Starting July 1, 2021, the San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative will be transitioning under the new direction of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County. If you have any questions regarding community partners, grants, or offerings, please reach out to Molly Okun, Donor Engagement Manager.
