Founded in 1966, our mission is “to provide and sustain a public venue where people of the Monadnock region can pursue artistic, educational and civic activities. The Center’s goal is to contribute to the cultural enrichment and enlightenment of the community.”

The Jaffrey Civic Center will not have any open hours or be open to the public till late February/early March of 2024. We have some renovations to do to alter our appearance! We are looking forward to seeing you in the new year. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us! All scheduled programs such as Stories to Share, Bridge, DAR meetings, etc. will continue to be hosted in-house here at the JCC.

We are hiring!

Executive Director Assistant

The JCC is at a turning point. With the closing of the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, NH, the JCC has an opportunity to further its arts and cultural mission and become a preeminent venue for regional artists who want to show, perform, or enhance their artistic discipline. Furthermore, Jaffrey itself is developing as a cultural mecca, with the sparkling Park Theatre across the street and the Jaffrey Library located next door. Our newly appointed Executive Director is planning on charting a fresh course which will energize a community spirit to strengthen participation in the Center. Our Executive Director needs assistance in bringing this to fruition.

What the JCC Needs Today 

While most of the work to be carried out will take place during regular working hours, the Executive Director’s Assistant should expect to work some evening and weekend hours, due to reception openings and events. Travel is expected to be predominantly regional, and a current driver’s license is required. This is an hourly position of approximately 20 hours weekly. The hourly rate is $17.50. The gallery is open to the public W-F Noon-5PM, Sat 10AM-2PM.
