JRF In-Service

  • The Foundation requires that JRF Scholars engage in community service throughout their college careers. This develops skills, promotes self-esteem and expands JRF’s impact through the value added to communities that benefit from their service.

    Scholars undertake a broad range of service activities. Examples include establishing a non-profit organization to aid young people in foster care who have aged-out; assisting in health clinics in Ghana; galvanizing peers to help renovate an athletic facility in Puerto Rico; and tutoring inmates in a maximum-security prison in Trenton, NJ.

    Twice a year Scholars submit detailed reports of their service activities to JRF staff. Some 30,000 people throughout the world benefit annually from JRF Scholars’ community service.
