Repair the World is launching its third cohort for Serve the Moment, a part-time service corps for young adults ages 18-29. The Serve the Moment (STM) Service Corps is aimed at creating systemic change around the Boston area, addressing COVID-19 relief efforts, food inequity, housing inequality and racial disparities.
Through this stipended 10-week program, corps members are placed in local organizations for 10 hours a week of hands-on (or virtual) volunteer service, directly seeing the impact of their efforts on the surrounding community. Corps members also participate in two hours of local and national service learning, professional development, community building and issue-based discussions. Through STM, participants connect Judaism to relevant local issues, finding community and meaning out of this uncertain period around the world. Through connecting to other young adults, participating in meaningful service and applying learning to action, we’ll continue to make a change in our own backyards.
Know someone looking to fill some time these next few months? Taking a gap year before college or looking to fill some time between classes or jobs, or new to Boston and looking to form a community? Apply by Feb. 15 to join the STM Boston Cohort. To learn more, nominate someone for the corps or to apply, visit servethemoment.org/join-the-corps. Feel free to reach out to Boston city coordinator Katie Hamelburg at katie.hamelburg@weRepair.org with any questions.
