Transformative experiences through social advocacy, leadership & connection
Sherut L’Olam provides programming informed by Jewish tradition, values, and ethics that empowers teens in grades 6-11 to explore advocacy, develop leadership & critical thinking skills, and inspire action.
It has allowed me to learn and grow as an individual, connect and bond with people in the group, and learn more about my Jewish identity. I have developed leadership skills, helped those in need, learned more about social issues and how we can stand up and become a social activist, and I’ve overall become a better person.
It is not often that you find a group of teenagers eager to learn and discuss life’s tough questions; it was an awesome environment to be in.
After every event we participate in, I feel empowered to go into the world and do something about issues I am passionate about.
I have loved being part of Sherut. What’s better than making best friends and creating fantastic memories with them? The programs and people are inspiring and incredible. Sherut gives you opportunities to share your voice and opinions/beliefs in the world.
