BBYO Stand UP and Rebuild
A Teen Issue Summit on the Power of Service
New York, NY
June 25-27, 2013
In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck the coasts of the Northeast area: uprooting homes, families and entire communities. Jewish teens have the responsibility to give back and serve those in need.
At BBYO Stand UP and Rebuild, Jewish teens from around the world will come together to show their support to the victims of Hurricane Sandy through hands-on service projects. They will hear from people most directly affected by the storm and participate in interactive sessions to learn how to build similar service projects in their own communities.
Interested in coordinating? Apply now! Applications will be accepted until April 22, 2013.
What is the schedule going to look like?
Participants will spend most of the afternoon on June 25 hearing from Hurricane Sandy victims and learning how they can become service leaders in their own communities. Teens will participate in hands-on service projects all day on June 26 and again on the morning of June 27 before departing. There will also be time to celebrate the start of summer with new friends from around the world.
All participants will earn 12 community service hours.
