Volunteer with Jews’ Next Dor

Posted by challahbackgirl on August 17, 2011

Love going to Jews’ Next Dor events? Be a part of what makes them possible. Everything is done by our wonderful group of volunteers. No time commit is too small and our seasoned volunteers are here to help you.

There’s a few ways to get involved with Jews’ Next Dor as a volunteer.

The most basic is to suggest an event idea or to pitch in at events you’re already attending,  take pictures, help clean up, come early to help setup, schmooze with participants and listen for their feedback about the group and pass it on to the steering committee. For some events we need help picking up items in advance.  If you love to cook, why not volunteer to make a main dish for one of our Shabbat Potlucks. Have some spare time to make a few calls? Run a search online? Add community events to our google calendar? Have something to say to your peers – be a Jews’ Next Dor blogger.

We’d love to hear your ideas for events and we truly appreciated your help in making those ideas a reality. Volunteering to be an event owner can be planning a new event or planning a Jews’ Next Dor tradition.

We’d also love for you to be part of one of our committees: programming, communications, and post-programming. Each committee is headed up by a Steering Committee member who will work with you on your involvement on the committee.

Contact anyone on the Steering Committee or if your interested in being a Jews’ Next Dor volunteer, have an event idea or with feedback, testimonials, or questions.

  2. […] The heart of our organization is our volunteers, without whom none of this would be possible. We’re always looking for people to help with tasks small and large, one-time or repeating. Do you have a talent you can share with us? Have an idea for an event? Want to help publicize our events? No time commitment is too small. Our seasoned volunteers are here to help. Our next volunteer meeting is November 15 at 8pm in Mountain View. Please RSVP for the address. This is also a great time to ask questions about being on our next Steering Committee, which will serve from January to June. Contact to volunteer or learn more.
