Stories

Another Story Title

I felt my experience of humanity expand and my identity as a justice-seeking Jew strengthen. I felt my compassion deepen, and my understanding of society and the structures that hold it together unfold. Above all, the Service Corps gave me the tools to be impactful in an often scary and confusing world. Especially in times like these.

Story Title

I think it’s important that we look beyond ourselves…While it’s important to take care of ourselves and our families, it’s also important to take care of the strangers that are in our community, that are kind of the unknown family. They’re part of us, and we all depend on each other even if we don’t necessarily see or feel it in the day to day.

FAQS

Events can vary based on our partners needs. In some cases, we work out of our hub, Saint Ann’s Church. Other times, we work at our partner’s site. In either case, we will begin the project with an introductary grounding: Why have we all gathered? Why is this work important?  What need does it address? Sometimes this education might take place prior to an event (via a short zoom meeting) and sometimes it will be facilitated by an educator on site prior to the project beginning. 

Service projects will vary in length and type of work. Most of our time we will be actively working on the identified project. At the end of the session, volunteers will be asked to help clean up, and we will reflect on the work and what we learned.

All of our opportunities are one-time events. You can sign up for one activity or multiple depending on your interest and schedule. 

Your commitment is important to our partners. We are counting on you. If you do have to cancel, please email amanda@theservicecollective.org

We work with Brooklyn nonprofits that need help and can welcome youth volunteers. No job is too big or too small. We love getting creative requests and finding ways for kids of all ages to engage in service. 

  1. Show up. Be on time and don’t leave early
  2. Come ready to listen, learn, and work hard
  3. Trust that our partners know what they need better than we do 
  4. Respect our TSC staff, facilities, fellow volunteers, and partners 
  5. Possess patience and positivity
