Volunteering allows teens to not only give back to their community, but it also helps build character. Fostering a sense of purpose and pride, the act of giving back is a rewarding process for both those in need and the volunteer.

UJA-FEDERATION’S WITNESS PROJECT
This unique, intergenerational program brings Holocaust survivors and teens together – under the leadership of social workers – to develop a multi-media performance and arts exhibit based on the survivors’ Holocaust experiences. The survivors and students meet to form close bonds through various activities and discussions. The multi-media performance and arts exhibit serves as a creative platform for the survivors’ stories of resilience to be shared. There is no cost for the program, however, fundraising for UJA’s Holocaust Services is encouraged. UJA-Federation’s The Witness Project is a collaborative effort between UJA-Federation of New York and Sid Jacobson JCC.
