Are you interested in volunteering with your peers around Chicago on a regular basis?

If so, we are now accepting applications for YLD and TOV's ongoing volunteer program, Mensches in Motion.

This six-session program will give you the opportunity to volunteer at a variety of JUF supported agencies and meet other young adults in the Chicago community! The volunteer schedule is shown below. Limited space is available.
The cost to participate is $36, which covers two program dinners for participants and all program expenses, including food and material donations to agencies visited. The cost of transportation is at the participant’s expense. Payment will be collected at the first session. This is not tax deductible as it is not a donation.
