A note to our Volunteers: At this time volunteering opportunities are limited in both our Early Childhood Center and the Madelaine Halmos Academy due to visitor restrictions on our campus. Please visit our Corporate Partners Program page or fill out a Volunteer Application and we will contact you once we are able to welcome volunteers and visitors back into our buildings. If you would like to support the Jack & Jill Center at this time, please consider making a donation.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Jack & Jill Center!
