Family friendly opportunities to volunteer right here in our neighborhood on the 3rd Saturday of every month packing meals for area seniors. Join with some friends and classmates. Sign up here for an available slot during the 2019-20 school year.
Did you know that Janney has a sister school? We do, and it’s Smothers Elementary in Ward 7! Throughout the year we’ll be looking ways for students and faculty to come together for shared learning opportunities. Visit again soon for opportunities to volunteer during the 2019-20 school year.
Janney continues our longstanding partnership with Thrive by identifying ways for older students to have hands-on opportunities to engage with Thrive as well as for younger students and families to participate. Each December Janney hosts a holiday gift drive for those in the women’s program and helps with their annual coat drive. Thrive is always in need of grocery bags (Paper, Plastic, or cloth) for the food they distribute weekly to low income individuals and families. You can drop off your bags, into a clearly marked bin, near the Janney front entrance. Check back here soon for volunteer opportunities with Thrive during the 2019-20 school year.
Friendship Place develops solutions to homelessness that have demonstrable results and a lasting impact. Its programs empower participants to rebuild their lives, find homes, get jobs, and reconnect with friends, family, and the community, permanently. Janney will partner with Friendship Place throughout the year, including a Kid Coats & Costume Drive in the fall. Check back here soon for volunteer opportunities with Friendship Place during the 2019-20 school year.
DC Child and Family Services Agency is the public child welfare agency in the District of Columbia responsible for protecting child victims and those at risk of abuse and neglect and assisting their families. Janney is partnering with the DC Foster Kids program over the holidays and throughout the year. Check back here soon for volunteer opportunities with DC-DFS during the 2019-20 school year.
