Get Involved

Jenkintown has a fantastic community spirit, and residents are encouraged to get involved with the Borough’s local events, community programs and social activities.

The Recreation Board

A volunteer group, funded by the Borough, that organizes community events for Jenkintown residents, including the Summer Music Series, the Chili Cook Off, the Holiday Tree Lighting and many more. Join the fun!

Environmental Advisory Committee

The EAC’s mission is to promote responsible environmental stewardship and sustainable practices within the Borough in order to enhance the quality of life and to benefit generations to come.


Jenkintown’s first comprehensive plan in over 50 years. It is a community-based document and your voice is essential to its success. Jenkintown2035 must reflect the needs and desires of all of the community’s residents to be truly effective in planning for the future. Whether you are a resident, student, employee, business owner, or a general interested citizen – we need to hear from you.

Newcomers Club

For over 70 years the Jenkintown Newcomers Club has been welcoming families and individuals into the community.

Mayor’s Sports Freecycle Program

How many times have your children outgrown sports equipment before they wore it out? Consider donating it, so that another Jenkintown family will get some use out of it.
