Social Action is a foundational component of our teen program at Shir Tikva. At TST, we recognize the power of teens as changemakers, as well as being the torchbearers for future generations.
Some of our annual teen social action opportunities include the Walk for Hunger, cooking for Family Promise (often with our friends from the Islamic Center of Boston across the street), as well as an annual STIFTY (youth group) fundraiser. Each year, our Shir Tikva teens organize a community-wide fundraiser in the fall benefiting a cause of their choice.
Our teens also connect to other social action opportunities in the community, partnering with the Jewish Teen Initiative and other local organizations for the Metrowest-wide Love Our Neighbors Service Day in October and Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Action in January.
We are also excited to be expanding the social action dimensions of our program with T³ (tCubed): Team Teen Tikkun (the program formerly known as Metrowest Teen Philanthropy).
Want to be connected to Social Action opportunities in our greater area? Got ideas for Social Action programs/initiatives that we could run here at TST? Have a cause you’re particularly passionate about? Feel free to reach out to our teen Social Action Vice Presidents, Ella Schacter or Allie Chase or Jenna Friedman
