Coming up-J-Serve Teen Task Force day

Save the date! The J-Serve Teen Task Force is more than excited to introduce J-Serve Orlando 2017 on Sunday, March 5, at 1 p.m. at the JCC. J-Serve is the international day of Jewish youth service, and has greatly impacted the greater Central Florida community for many years.

This year, we as a teen Task force decided that J-Serve will focus on love and diversity, with projects focusing on LGBTQ+ inclusion and honoring our local elders (specifically, the 39ers, a day group for seniors at The Roth Family JCC.) Participants will get the chance to choose whichever project is more suited for them, as well as earn four community service hours.

"Since J-Serve is the International Day of Jewish Youth Service, we feel more connected to the projects because we're all young people ourselves. Through hands-on service projects, we hope to help as much as we can. The best part is we can inspire everyone to continue to serve their communities beyond J-Serve," said Rebecca Michel, one of two Teen Task Force captains, along with Noah Senderowitz.  

J-Serve is such an important day for all of the Jewish teens in Central Florida, and it takes a lot to make the event happen each year. Our next fundraiser will be at the Jeremiah's Italian Ice in Maitland on Feb. 27 from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Partial proceeds will go back to the community, so we want as many people there as possible. At the fundraiser, Task Force Leaders will be on hand to help volunteers register, but anyone can register on their own at orlandojcc.org/calendar/j-serve.
