Get Volunteer Hours! Build Your Resume!
Join the Mad Town Jewish Teen Volunteer Program!

Calling all Jewish high schoolers in Madison! Shaarei Shamayim is organizing an awesome week for Jewish teens to learn about issues affecting Madison including the achievement gap, poverty, and homelessness. We will volunteer at a variety of organizations around town including schools, community centers, and programs working for social change. We’ll end with a camping trip over Shabbat at Camp Shalom.

The program is August 17th-22nd, 2015, with an orientation the day before. Volunteering will take place Monday through Friday, and the camping trip will be Friday evening through Saturday. (If you have any conflicts during the week, you may still be able to participate.) The program is staffed by Parthy Schachter, Program Coordinator. They’ll be joined by Rabbi Laurie and Aviv Kammay on Shabbat.

Here are five reasons to do the program:

1) You can do something meaningful at the end of the summer.
2) You can earn up to 20 volunteer hours for school.
3) You can build your resume and show people you know what’s going on in your community.
4) You can hang out with cool Jewish teens from around Madison.
5) You can contribute to your community and make a difference.

The cost is $160, which is generously subsidized by the Jewish Federation of Madison Innovation Panel. Scholarships are available, and there is a multi-child discount for siblings.

The deadline for applications is May 1st.
