What is volunteering?

Although we work primarily for and with the Jewish community, volunteering is by no means a uniquely Jewish activity. Volunteering is seen as a universal value through which many things that benefits society can be accomplished. It is traditionally found, however, that faith groups do pay particular attention to the volunteering needs of their communities.


Volunteering is defined as:


Any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit animals,  the environment or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives. Central to this definition is the fact that volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual.

At JVN, we focus on formal volunteering, which involves doing something structured for a charity or community organisation. Central to our ethos is the belief that anyone, regardless of their age or ability, can give their time in a valuable way through volunteering. It is our aim to connect people to the volunteering opportunity where they can be of the most value. Click here to see how JVN can help you.
