Get Involved at Jeff School African American Heritage Center

The Jefferson School African American Heritage Center in Charlottesville, Virginia is offering numerous opportunities for individuals to get involved this year. Whether you’re interested in becoming a docent, volunteering at events, enrolling your child in a class, or becoming a greeter, there are plenty of ways to contribute.

If you’re interested in taking a class, the Eko Ise Classes are a great option. You can also volunteer at the cafe or the greeter desk to help support the center’s operations. Additionally, you can sign up to help plan Juneteenth, a significant event celebrating liberation and freedom.

In collaboration with Whole Theater, the Charlottesville Players Guild presents 24/7, a unique event where seven plays are written overnight, rehearsed all day, and performed for the audience, all within 24 hours. VIP ticket holders will receive two drink tickets and a snack.

The JSAAHC is also preparing for the next Reparations Run on March 2, 2024, which aims to raise funds for various organizations including 101.3 JAMZ, AATF, JSAAHC, NAACP, Prolyfyck, Tonsler League, and Vinegar Hill Magazine.

Don’t forget to stop by the Alumni Room Cafe, located in the same space as Pearl Island. They offer coffee and freshly baked treats to start your day off right. You can also browse their selection of books, t-shirts, and unique gifts.

To get involved, you can click on the provided links or visit the center in person from Tuesday to Friday between 1-6 pm or on Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm. The staff will be happy to show you around and help you get started on your chosen involvement.

This year is the perfect opportunity to make a difference and be a part of the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center’s important work.
