Tour de Fun - We need your help!
The Tour de Fun would not be possible without the awesome volunteers that help set up, keep an eye on the kids, run the games, man the rides and clean up. All volunteers get a FREE Tour de Fun shirt!
Watch as children give it their all in this annual competition. Kids race around the J's Creve Coeur campus swimming, riding and running, and cross the finish line with a true sense of accomplishment. Support youth fitness and get involved in the Kids' Triathlon! Multiple shifts are available.

Make a difference in someone's life.
Help someone with special needs by being a volunteer in one of our programs. These include Sunday Friendship, Theatre Unlimited, PEERS, Buddies at Work and fitness classes. You can make a difference in helping someone make a new friend, help them learn a new job skill or even help them learn lines for their play.
The J has many bulk mail projects that require sorting, folding and stuffing. These are ongoing projects, without set start and end times.
Help others step into the spotlight
Have a love of theatre? Help our Youth Theatre department as they prepare to take the stage this spring. Rehearsals are on Sundays at Fox with final rehearsals and performances at the Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur. Act as a stage manager - attend rehearsals, prop & costome organization, light office work and earn our standing ovation.
