Independent School Service Trip to Houston


Rebuilding Neighborhoods in Houston

If our Habitat for Humanity trip during February vacation week, didn’t work with your calendar but you want to travel with friends and make an impact where it’s needed, THIS IS YOUR TRIP!

Join Jewish teens from Greater Boston, ages 15+, for this June service trip to Houston, Texas where we’ll be helping the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas and around $125 billion in damage. With Harvey, an estimated 13 million people were affected, nearly 135,000 homes damaged or destroyed in the historic flooding, and up to a million cars were wrecked.

Houston is still recovering from this disaster, the second-most costly hurricane to hit the U.S. mainland since 1900. Thanks to a generous Act Now Houston grant from Repair the World, we are able to offer this trip at a highly subsidized cost.

Please remember, while we absolutely have fun on this trip, it is a work/volunteer experience. If you are not interested in doing significant work, please do not take a spot from someone who is excited to work hard.

  • Who: Greater Boston Jewish teens, ages 15+
  • When: Monday, June 18th through Saturday, June 23rd
