SYJCC/DOROT Jewish Summer Teen Internship Program

Jewish Teens that are rising sophomores, juniors and seniors can intern with a diverse group of socially conscious peers to bring vital social connections to older adults. Through our summer teen internship programs, you can develop leadership skills and engage in meaningful programs with older adults. Through a variety of intergenerational activities – including discussion groups, creative arts and tech assistance – you can give back to the community this summer while earning 100+ community service hours.
