Teen Mitzvah Corps

Teen Mitzvah Corps

The Teen Mitzvah Corps is a program (September – May) where a select group of 6th – 8th graders will spend one Sunday a month volunteering. Each month we will highlight a different organization that benefits the Dallas community. Each session will be at least two hours. The first hour will be spent learning about the organization and how they serve the community; the second hour will be spent doing hands-on volunteer work.

Teens will be developing leadership skills, networking, and have the opportunity to see first-hand how these organizations impact our community.
