If you would like to increase JAM’s presence at your place of work, school, university, church or an event, then why not become a JAM representative? We will regularly send you resources to enable you to update your colleagues or your congregation on JAM’s latest news. You would become our ambassador and the ‘go-to’ person at your place of work/school or university for all things relating to JAM. After a period of faithful service, we might crown you an official JAMbassador!


Do you have management experience and feel that you would be able to lead and co-ordinate a team of volunteers in your region? Building relationships, forming community and managing tasks? If this sounds like you, we NEED YOU.

Events Volunteer

Enjoy some of the UK’s best events and conferences for free whilst making a difference in Africa. Have loads of fun, make lasting friendships while boosting your CV. We need a few extra hands on deck!


Our aim is to gather teams of fun and create fundraisers. If you love organising and running events, it will be your job to manage and co-ordinate such fundraisers. This may be anything from selling Jammie Dodgers to hiking up Ben Nevis!


If you get a thrill from spreadsheets, forms and other related admin, we have plenty of such tasks that require a detailed eye. If you have a big heart and extra time, we need you!

Field Volunteer

Volunteering your time abroad can be a life-changing experience. Although JAM cannot guarantee a placement, we still encourage people to sign up. We will get in touch if there is a way we can work together to serve our beneficiaries in Africa.

To find out more or to get involved, please complete the form below. We will then get in touch to tell you more and answer any questions you might have. Thank you for your support and interest in volunteering with JAM!
