Buslik/Levy Teen Services Center

Sid Jacobson JCC is the place to be for teens!

We are the place for teens to volunteer, learn, lead, travel and play. Whether you’re in middle school or high school, we have a program that will meet all of your academic and social needs. The JCC offers college and Regents preparation, service projects, leadership opportunities and the chance to make lifelong connections.

Learn how the JCC impacts teens' lives everyday!

Amazing things happen with teens at the JCC! Last year, over 1,000 teens from 12 area high schools participated in our programs through volunteer, leadership, recreational, travel, summer and academic programs. Teens at the JCC earn on average 42 volunteer hours annually through community service programs, and raise $15,000 for causes important to them through philanthropic initiatives and special events. The JCC provides teens opportunities to flourish beyond their high school years. In the 2013-2014 school year, teens were awarded $10,000 in merit-based scholarships to their institutions of high education. Additionally, teens that are involved in leadership programs at the JCC continue to build these skills in college through Hillel, Greek life, Student clubs and associations and more. Let the JCC having a lasting impact on your life. Contact us today!

Connecting with our community

What better way to connect with the community than at the JCC? As a teen volunteer you help support families (children and eldercare), improve education (tutoring and literacy), support youth (after-school programs and mentoring), beautify the community (beach and park cleanups) and help vulnerable populations (those who are hungry and sick).

Contact the JCC today to see how you can make a difference while earning community service hours!

Why should you get involved at the JCC?

“The JCC became a second home to me and a place for me to grow and flourish. It allowed me to develop a new sense of responsibility, commitment and dedication over the past five years. This is something that will stay with me forever. The JCC afforded me the unique opportunity to become a part of the special needs community through volunteerism and opened my eyes to a world I might have never really been aware of. My working experiences have now become a passion for me which I plan to continue in my college career and adult life. Most importantly, I cherish the relationships and friendships developed while working with my students and peers over the past several years. Simply put, the JCC has allowed me to become a better person.” – Max E., 17
