Creating Life-Changing Opportunities
Join other Jewish teens from Greater Boston and across the country for our national travel programs to create life-changing opportunities for learning, reflection and growth.
Our Most Popular National Travel Programs:
Habitat for Humanity:
With instruction from Habitat and AmeriCorps leaders, teens build, repair, reclaim materials, paint and more. In the evenings, teens kick back and have some fun bowling, go-carting, and taking in local events, like a pro-hockey game. Throughout the week, they have the opportunity to discuss and learn about the Jewish faith’s connection to service work and “tikkun olam,” or repairing the world. (Teens must be at least 16 years of age by the start of the trip). This trip is made possible in part by Repair the World.
L’Taken Social Justice Seminar:
This unique program enables students to hear from experts both inside and outside the Jewish community, to lobby on Capitol Hill, visit the Smithsonian, tour the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and sample the vibrancy of Georgetown and other D.C. neighborhoods!
Independent School Service Trip:
Jewish teens from Greater Boston will be guided by local partner agency volunteers in building, repairing, painting and more in areas impacted by by natural disasters. In the evenings, we’ll have fun exploring, taking in local events, music and sampling local cuisine. Throughout the week, we’ll discuss and learn about the Jewish faith’s connection to service work and repairing the world.
