Meet Our Board – James Farah, Esq.

HandsOn Jacksonville claims bragging rights to an amazing board of directors! We’d like you to get to know them all, so over the next few weeks we’ll be shining the spotlight on them. You’ll get an inside peek at who they are, what they do, what they’re passionate about and how they’re making our community a better place for everyone.

HOJ: What inspires you to serve as a board member of HandsOn Jacksonville?

JF: HOJ is full of energetic and dedicated staff members who are committed to volunteerism.  HOJ provides a very structured way to be involved and to inspire others to get involved in the community.  Professionalism, efficiency and integrity are key aspects of HOJ.  I enjoy working with the team members, fellow board members and the community.

HOJ:  What do you think the most important issue is on The First Coast?

JF:  Education and graduation rates continue to be one of the most important issues on my mind.  The younger generation must have ample opportunities to gain an education to be able to make it on their own.

HOJ: What would you say to someone who is considering getting involved in community service?

JF:  If you have not tried it, sign up online and give it a try.  I recommend it because once you do it, you will not be able to stop!
