J-Serve Through the Years

In Their Own Words

Read what NSTI teens have said, in their own words, about digging in and helping their community every April during J-Serve, a Global International Day of Jewish Youth Service.

“Each year we do different projects at different schools based on the needs of each school. It’s amazing to see what teens can do in one afternoon. Everyone that participates at J-Serve works hard to make the school better through projects like mural painting, building bulletin boards, planting gardens and more.”

~ Bettina Bucco, J-Serve 2013


“Along with the school’s administration, we have created a plan to make Harrington School a fun, educational place for students to excel. Projects ranging from painting outdoor murals to renovating the school’s blacktop area will be led by both teen leaders & volunteering adults to help make the school come alive.
 I look forward to this worthwhile opportunity with NSTI, and hope to see as many of our friends as possible at this great day geared to help brighten our community, while having fun at the same time!”
