Click here to volunteer for the 2017 Captial Region JCC Maccabi Games

The JCC Maccabi Games are not the effort of any one group, organization, or program. The Games are a celebration of our entire community where we come together to strengthen our identity, engage all of the Jewish Capital Region, and build a foundation for continued partnership and sustainability. Together, we will build a healthier Capital Region – Jewish and beyond.

The 2017 JCC Maccabi Games in Captial Region will require the guiding hands of more than 1,000 volunteers. From administration to transportation – and everything in between – there are opportunities that fit your interests your talents and your time availability. Whether you volunteer during the week of the Games or in a role leading up to the event, the time is now to raise your hand.

We cannot do it alone, nor would we want to. Invest in the Games with your time and talent and, along with your friends and neighbors, help build an experience that will be remembered for years to come.
