The Teen Service Corps is a 6 week service learning program with cohorts in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. Throughout the program teens (rising 9th through 12th graders) will learn about systemic injustice through a Jewish lens, hone leadership skills and volunteer in various neighborhoods to promote food and housing justice, and combat social isolation. Volunteering will follow strict COVID safety compliance guidelines and may pivot to a partial or full virtual format.
Receive 80 Community Service Hours.
What Former Corps Members have to say!
“It was inspiring to be a part of a group of teens who truly seemed to care.”
“I loved that this program was educational but not in a stressful type of way like school is.”
“This program not only introduced me to the issues but it gave me an opportunity to personally make a difference.”
“I feel a lot more proud to be a Jew right now, probably the proudest I have felt in my life.”
“When it ended, it felt kind of like camp was ending."
