What Do Jews’ Next Dor Volunteers Do?

Posted by jewsnextdor on July 1, 2009

Volunteers run 100% of Jews’ Next Dor operations and events. It’s our volunteers that make all the wonderful events we do happen, from conception to implementation, from setting up to cleaning up, from marketing to budgeting, from shopping to Facebook events. We invite you to join our volunteers and help shape and build the Jews’ Next Dor community at our meeting Thursday, July 2 at 7:15 in Cupertino. RSVP to JewsNextDor[at] for the address.We value the time of our volunteers and truly appreciate their dedication to the group. No time commitment is too small.  There’s many tasks to be done by volunteers to help keep the group running. Some of these should be done by multiple people, some are positions that last a year on our governing committee, and others can be done at an event you’re already attending without further commitment. There’s truly something for everyone.

Remember, you’re not doing this alone. Start your rewarding experience of lending a hand to help build your community and have fun with your friends, old and new.

Here’s just a partial list, but it will give you an idea of things our volunteers do.
