J-Serve's spring program set for April 7

 

November 2, 2018



Each year, Jewish teens across our community come together to join in a worldwide day of Jewish youth community service, called J-Serve. This unique, teen-led program provides participants a unique opportunity to band together through service as a united global network committed to fulfilling the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim, acts of loving kindness; tzedakah, just and charitable giving; and tikun olam, the responsibility to repair the world.

J-Serve is an annual day that our Orlando teens care deeply about. In order to make our day of service a huge success, a Teen Task force is appointed to select causes that teens are passionate about and to plan programs that allow teens to serve and advocate for the causes that are important to them. The 2018-2019 J-Serve Teen Task force is already hard at work planning for the spring. This year’s program will take place on Sunday, April 7, 1 p.m.- 5 p.m., and is open to teens in grades 6-12.  

All participants will receive four hours of community service for the program. If you have any questions about J-Serve 2019 please email jserveorlando@gmail.com.

The Teen Task Force would like to thank our local partners, BBYO, The Roth Family JCC, The Rosen JCC, NFTY, and USY; as well as our global partners: Good Deeds Day, Repair the World, YSA’s Global Youth Service Day. The initiative is generously underwritten by The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
