Make a difference in someone's life.

Bulk Mail
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.

Should your volunteer interests not match well with the J’s needs at the moment, we will be more than happy to connect you with a community program that might better fit your goals.  Thank you so much for being part of the J!
