It’s no wonder people travel near and far to visit. If you’re proud to be a Jacksonville resident, what better way to celebrate than giving back to the city that has given us so much? If you’re interested in serving our community, Jacksonville offers several volunteer opportunities that are excellent ways for residents to get involved. Here at Paul’s Termite and Pest Control, we have outlined some great volunteer opportunities below.

Jacksonville Humane Society

Do you have a passion for animals? Then volunteering at the Jacksonville Humane Society may be the perfect opportunity for you! JHS has volunteer opportunities for anyone aged 16 and above, in addition to group opportunities. What better way to give back than caring for animals, walking dogs, and cleaning their homes for them. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the JHS, they suggest you attend one of their Volunteer Information Sessions.

UF Health Jacksonville

If you enjoy helping others, volunteering at UF Health Jacksonville may be the perfect option for you. There are several ways to give your time, including at the academic medical center, alongside physicians, in the gift shop, or as a patient escort. Based on interest and abilities, you can be assigned to one of 50 departments at UF Health Jacksonville. Patient contact is optional if you would prefer to work behind the scenes instead. Regardless of what you choose, you will be making a difference in someone’s life.

Jacksonville Public Library

Another great way to give back to the Jacksonville community is to volunteer at the Jacksonville Public Library. The library offers both short-term and long-term volunteer opportunities. There are several volunteer positions that you could participate in, such as: computer class/e-classroom assistant, customer service assistant, adopt-a-shelf assistant, and a shelver. Volunteering at the library is a great resume builder and a wonderful way to learn more about city government.
