Make a Difference: Become a Champion of Inclusion
If you are a Boston-area teen in grades 10 – 12, you can apply to be a volunteer in Gateways’ Jewish Education Programs!
Our Teen Volunteer Program isn’t your average volunteer experience. What makes our program stand out is not the skillset you’ll gain or the volunteer hours you’ll collect, but the relationships that you’ll build with students as you support them in experiencing a Jewish education that is both accessible and meaningful.
Volunteers receive weekly training and support from on-site special education teachers and administrators, learning valuable skills they can take with them to college and beyond.
How to Apply
Gateways accepts applications during the spring for the following school year. Questions? Please contact our Teen Volunteer Coordinator, Jodi Katz.
