Volunteer at Joya

Just as Joya relies on the generosity of our donors to help fund our life-changing program for those who can’t afford it, we look for the donation of time as well to keep our events running smoothly. Volunteers can help in a variety of ways at Joya and have an incredible impact on the kiddos and families we serve.


Only our professional therapists and staff are able to work directly with kids.  However, we appreciate your help in other ways. If you are interested in volunteering for one of our many events, contact us or fill out this form:

Ways to volunteer

Event support

Joya holds several events each year to raise awareness and financial support for our program. From setting up for the spring auction, to labeling containers for our annual penny drive, there are a number of opportunities to pitch in.

Facility support

Joya runs a lean operation when it comes to administrative staff. That’s why we always appreciate helping hands in the office. From folding newsletters to inputting information, jobs big and small can make a huge difference.

High school advisory board

Our High School Advisory Board has teams of representatives from a dozen local high schools. Students get to know Joya children and families, as well as community leaders, our pediatric specialists and the Foundation trustees. Representatives plan presentations during school assemblies and events and organize fundraisers to support this great cause. Board members also help with special events and recruit students to volunteer at various sites for the  Community Day Penny Drive.
