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!).

J-Serve is the annual day of service for Jewish youth throughout the world. It is a day on which Jewish teens join their counterparts in other faith communities, cities, and other countries in giving their time to serve the communities in which they live. This year, J Serve in San Diego will be coordinated by the JCC Teen Department and our Teen Leadership Council. All youth groups and teen programs welcome.

The JCC Teen Leadership Council is teaming up with J-Team to create a meaningful and enriching community service project. Teens meet with kids from J-Team to work on homework, read together, and play games. Participants will gain community service hours while acting as positive role-models for younger children.
ISRAEL HOUSE IN BALBOA PARK
Head down to Balboa Park on Sundays and check out the Israel House in the International Village. There you will meet our teen volunteers who will share with you their pride in the Jewish State and hand you a delicious latke. Spend some time there as a volunteer and you’ll gain invaluable stories from other friends of Israel while showing your support for our homeland.
To register for a teen program, fill out the Registration Form.
