Becoming a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Jewish Social Services! Please contact Paul Borowsky at 608-442-4083 to get started. Our application process includes an interview, reference checks and a background check. Volunteers who will be driving also provide a copy of their driver’s license, proof of insurance, and permission for us to check their drivers’ records. Once we assign you to an activity, there will be a short orientation.
