Each February vacation week we go from hitting the books to hitting nails through Habitat for Humanity’s alternative spring break program. JTI’s weeklong program allows students to make a difference volunteering alongside future homeowner families while learning about poor living conditions and how decent, affordable housing builds strength, stability and self-reliance for those families.
This unique one-week volunteer program runs from Sunday night through Saturday evening, culminating at a local temple or university Hillel for Shabbat services, dinner and reflection on all that we’ve learned over the course of the week. Alternative spring break allows us to travel, meet new people and feel the satisfaction of working to improve a community—and lives.
No experience is needed to volunteer. While we have lots of fun on this service trip, please remember that it is a work/volunteer experience. If you’re not interested in doing significant work, please do not take a slot from someone who is excited to work hard.+ More... - Less...
