BJE Impact: Jewish Service Learning

For updates on  BJE Impact and BJE Teen Service Corps, as well as other service learning opportunities, please contact BJE's Program Director of Teen Experiential Education Lily Khalili
BJE Impact: The Center for Jewish Service Learning seeks to inspire Jewish youth to “Learn. Act. Reflect. IMPACT.” Our goal is for youth to engage in meaningful service opportunities that combine hands-on action, Jewish learning, and identity building, and we support and facilitate this through a variety of ways.
BJE Impact Teen Service Corps is a teen program which engages teens in direct community service and service learning. They volunteer at different organizations each day throughout the year on the issues of hunger, homelessness and poverty, environmental issues, and more.  Volunteer work is followed by reflection activities led by Teen Service Corps educators.

This summer BJE Teen Service Corps will be offering two options - the week long day camps (there are two based out of two different synagogues) and a sleep away program organized by BJE and Camp Ramah.

For more information about these programs and to sign up go to BJE TEEN SERVICE CORPS 2024.
