Tufts Hillel is excited to announce its new partnership with a national organization called Repair the World, an organization committed to inspiring American Jews and their communities to give their time and effort to serve those in need. By working with Repair the World, Hillel will be able to take its current programming to a new level and better fulfill its role as a Tzedek Hillel. Challenged with engaging more students than ever in long term service work, Hillel and Repair the World are looking to empower young people everywhere to pursue their passion, raise awareness for what’s important, and make volunteering a priority in their lives.
Look out for opportunities to volunteer through our existing initiatives and programs. If you have an idea or a passion for something and don’t know how to get started, we’re here to be your resource! Please contact either Kira Mikityanskaya or Julie Kalt to get started.
Current Initiatives and Volunteer Opportunities:
- Teach English to new immigrants, specifically those from Rwanda.
- Volunteer at a local nursing home and engage with the members of that community.
- Assist elementary schools kids with afterschool homework help through the Homework Wizards program at the Welcome Project.
- Volunteer as a group at Cradles to Crayons and help meet children’s needs for school supplies, clothes, and more.
