Calling teen leaders! Take on a special role in our MLK Day Signature Site (described below) as a group leader. You will help to facilitate a meaningful experience for a group of up to 20 participants- helping them get to know each other, process what they are learning, and move from place to place following the event schedule. This opportunity is right for you if you love to be in front of a group, build community, and you have a passion for service.   

MLK Day of Service and Learning Signature Site- Inspired by the Dr. King quote “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward” and the text, “It is not your duty to finish the work, but neither are you at liberty to neglect it” from Pirkei Avot, participants will engage in a round-robin of activities resulting in the creation of a Kindness Kit – a package with items frequently requested by individuals experiencing homelessness that can be distributed from a car by each participating volunteer. At each activity session, participants will learn from skilled facilitators about why an item is needed and will begin to unpack the complexity of moving from homelessness to economic stability.   

In partnership with 4Front, teen group leaders must view a virtual training video and participate in reflection and lunch day-of event. Teen group leaders will earn 4-7 service learning hours for their participation in this role. 

Keeping in mind the health and safety of our guests and staff members, Jewish Volunteer Connection (JVC) will continue to monitor the safety practices and protocols, recommended by the venue, local, state and CDC guidelines at the time of the event. All guests attending events, meetings and programs are highly encouraged to be fully vaccinated, wear masks when not actively eating or drinking, and to practice social distance. If you or anyone in your family is not feeling well, please refrain from attending.
