A Volunteer Initiative for Adults Over 50

IMPACT! is a new volunteer initiative designed for Baby Boomers looking to use their skills, passion, and leadership to make a difference in people's lives through hands-on volunteering opportunities.

We are a one-stop shop for connecting Jewish Clevelanders to personal and powerful volunteer experiences in Cleveland and in Israel. Commitments range from one day, to one week, to one year, and can be tailor-fit to your interests.

Whether you are a long-time volunteer looking to meet others, or new to volunteering and need help finding the right opportunity, the Jewish Volunteer Network's IMPACT! initiative is here for you.
