JEMfriends is a volunteer-powered organization. We prioritize the personal and professional development of our volunteers through ongoing training in various areas including communication and trauma. JEMfriends enjoy intentional relationships with all volunteers, creating an atmosphere of compassion, support, and belonging. From event hosting to care packages and mentoring, JEMfriends volunteers have an invaluable impact on the youth we serve together.


“JEMfriends provides a great support program for aged our foster youth, it would be great to grow and replicate to provide more youth the opportunity to be successful all over the State. ” – Linda

“Volunteering with JEMfriends is one of the best things that has ever happened to me! I love volunteering at the Gala, spending time with the youth, and other areas I can love the least of them.”- Faith
