Volunteers are at the heartbeat of the Willie Hutch Jones Educational Sports Program and the difference you can make is profound.

Your gift of time will help us provide the highest possible quality of service to the youth we serve and to our communities. We invite you to be a part of our team. In return, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that your time is making a difference in the life of a child.

WHJESP is dedicated to creating a safe, caring environment where our youth can grow and prosper. Therefore, all volunteers will be pre-screened, and depending on their assignments, may have to provide fingerprints and agree to have background checks.

To volunteer, please contact our office at 716-883-6243.
