JASAChat


At JASA, we are particularly affected by COVID-19 crisis. The 40,000 older New Yorkers who rely on us are more at risk both from the virus itself as well as being isolated in their homes. 

In March 2020, we launched the JASAChat program to connect volunteers with seniors for a weekly phone or video chat. The response has been remarkable -- to date, we've made over 550 matches. True, long lasting friendships have formed.
 
The need for volunteers continues to grow and we hope you will sign up to be part of our caring community.

 

Seniors and their families count on us, and we count on you! (ages 18+)

JASANextGen

JASANextGen is a volunteer advocacy program led by the next generation to educate and advocate on issues relating to older adults. JASANextGenners join monthly meetings to learn about a range of topics from food insecurity to elder abuse, help raise critical funds for our annual JASAEats campaign, take lead in volunteer projects, and participate in mini-internships.

JASANextGen Teens (ages 12-17)  have the opportunity to hone their leadership skills and learn more about different career fields while JASANextGen Young Adults (ages 18-22) focus on career development and networking.
