Looking to serve immersively, make an impact on local organizations and build community with young adults throughout the Boston area? Join Repair the World’s Spring Service Corps!
The Spring Service Corps, running from March 7 to May 13, is a part-time paid program where young adults ages 18-29 volunteer in local organizations for 8-10 hours a week virtually or in-person. In addition to volunteering in local organizations, corps members meet once a week to build community, learn from local experts about issues in the Boston area and gain professional skills and experiences.
Check out the story of Jasmin Bach, a two-time Service Corps member who volunteered at The Neighborhood Developers (TND) in Chelsea. Jasmin explained that when she joined the service corps, “… it became clear to me that tikkun olam, repairing the world, was a vital part of being Jewish. Serving is now part of both my personal and Jewish values. Caring for others is why service is so important to me now.” She further explained the impact of her time at TND, writing that “it’s amazing to see a group of nonprofits from all over Boston come together and share resources that will not only uplift the organizations but allow for greater access to food for members of the Boston community.”
Final applications are due Monday, Feb. 28. For more information and to apply, click here. Apply today to start your service journey through Boston!
