J-Serve Detroit is a coalition of community organizations dedicated to creating meaningful volunteer experiences with and for Jewish 6th to 12th graders.
For a number of years Education Directors, Youth Directors, and Rabbis in our community who work with teens have been dedicated to making J-SERVE Detroit a priority. Teens from all denominations, youth programs and schools, as well as those who are unaffiliated continue to come together for the sole purpose of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
Since 2008 teens in our community have volunteered at a variety of projects. You can see a list of some of them below:
WHAT IS J-Serve?
J-Serve Detroit Goals include:
J-Serve will continue to build on the success of bringing together teens from all denominations and affiliations.
J-SERVE (click here for website) is the International Day of Jewish Youth Service. Since 2005, J-Serve has been a part of Youth Service America's Global Youth Service Day weekend.
J-SERVE provides teens with the opportunity to fulfill the Jewish values of gemilut chasidim, acts of loving kindness, tzedakah, just and charitable giving, and tikkum olam, the responsibility to repair the world.
Across the globe, teens will join each other to make their community and the world a better place.
J-SERVE is in partnership with REPAIR THE WORLD and YOUTH SERVICE AMERICA, , and is generously underwritten by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
J-Serve Detroit is generously funded by grants from the Stephen H. Schulman Millennium Fund at the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and local sponsoring organizations.
