The importance of volunteering

Jennings County Youth Foundation is a nonprofit organization completely ran by volunteers. We rely on the enthusiasm and generosity of our many supporters. 

We have numerous volunteers that help at events such as the Summer Food Program, Summer Kids Camp, and the Affordable Christmas. However, we would love for the community to become more involved in the committees.

Our committees are the heart and soul of the Jennings County Youth Foundation. During our committee meetings we come up with new ideas to support our youth, ways to improve our current programs, and fundraising ideas to support our programs. 

Collaborating with the community is an excellent way for us to improve upon what we are doing. We want to know what you (the community) want.  We want your input on how to best help our youth. 

10 Reasons to Volunteer:


  • 10: It's good for you mentally and physically

  • 6: You learn a lot about yourself and your community
