CALLING ALL 8TH - 12th GRADERS!

Teen volunteers will help lead and participate in a community day of Mental Health Awareness, in advance of May's Mental Health Awareness Month.

Teens will work with families and children to develop skills to recognize and alleviate pressures of mental health challenges. Participants will build personal wellness toolkits through activities such as yoga, soap making, art and more, and will also contribute to advocacy campaigns to lobby for better mental health care services and support in our schools.


We are excited to announce that:


J-SERVE is an annual day held during April, coinciding this year with Good Deeds Day. During J-SERVE, Jewish teens around the world create service experience for themselves that serve their home communities. J-Teen Leadership plans and participates in Westchester's local J-Serve project with BBYO Westchester. This year we will also be partnering with Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS), the largest provider of outpatient mental health services in Westchester.
