ENGAGE: Jewish Service Corps for Boomers and beyond
Are you ready to use your skills, passion and leadership to tackle local issues like poverty, hunger, joblessness, education, the isolated elderly and children with special needs? Westchester’s Engage initiative is creating a community of volunteers who work sideby-side on group volunteer projects and individually with agencies as needed, and attend supplementary programming such as lunch and learn forums, film screenings and performing arts events. Engage gives volunteers the opportunity to “do good” on a daily, weekly, monthly, or occasional basis. Volunteers are matched with local organizations based on their interests and abilities. Our volunteers have already provided over 3,000 hours of service at many types of organizations, including Kids Kloset, Amazing Readers, Food Bank for Westchester, My Sister’s Place and Sunrise Camp for Children with Cancer.

To join us, contact Melissa Baer, at 914.366.7898 or
