Community Service Projects

Each month we will be advertising and promoting a community service project to embark on based on the consideration of the Teen Leadership Council. We will be collaborating with community service organizations and other Jewish Agencies and Youth groups to promote community engagement and build partnerships. This is a great way to get your community service hours for the month and learn more about the community we live in.

If you come to at least four community service/leadership events or workshops, you will be invited to a Leadership Banquet in May and presented a Leadership Certificate of Merit (which looks great on college apps!).
