Volunteering with different organizations through Serve the Moment has re-connected me to my community in a time when I’ve felt very self-isolated and helpless. I’m watching the world falling apart and it breaks my heart; I am such a small person but something as mundane a task to me, such as delivering groceries or packaging meals, allows me to take part in helping those in need. It lets me be a tiny part in healing the world and I am so thankful for the experience. – Natalie Guthrie, Bay Area
What is Serve the Moment?
“Serve the Moment” is an initiative of Repair the World in partnership with the Jewish Service Alliance, which aims to mobilize tens of thousands of Jewish young adults and college students in acts of meaningful service and learning to address the COVID-19 crisis, its economic fallout, and the current movement for racial justice. The initiative encompasses the Service Corps, national campaigns, and episodic service programs.
What is the Service Corps?
The Service Corps, now in its second year, mobilizes young adults ages 18-29 to invest both in their communities and themselves through a Jewish service-learning experience. Corps members will volunteer virtually or in-person, following CDC guidelines, with local service partners working to combat the lasting economic and social effects of the pandemic. Each city will have a cohort supervised by a local Repair the World staff member to integrate the themes of the program in a small group setting. Corps members will spend approximately 10 hours per week volunteering, connecting with the Jewish community, and discussing foundational elements of social justice.
