200,000 Hours for 200 Years Volunteer

As we proudly commemorate our 200 years of unwavering commitment to higher education, health care and community impact, we invite all members of the Jefferson community—employees, students, their families, patients, board members and alumni—to be part of a historic endeavor that will leave a profound impact on those we serve. 

How Can You Get Involved?

Two centuries of growth and impact wouldn't have been possible without the collective efforts of employees, alumni and students who have embraced our values and shaped our institution. To honor this legacy and continue the tradition of giving back, we've set an ambitious goal: to contribute 200,000 hours of volunteer service to our communities during this monumental year.
