Reach Out! is a weekly service learning program (in 9 week cycles), launched in the spring of 2010 for young adult Jews in the Greater Boston area. The program’s goals reinforce the overall mission of community relations in that they provide critical opportunities for participants to form ongoing relationships with diverse members of the greater Boston community, through their volunteer sites. Sites are intentionally chosen where the volunteer work is most likely to respond to identified community needs and to have positive impact on the quality of life in the broader community. Equally significant is the program’s focus on engaging the next generation in the work of community relations and supporting them in building their own community of peer, focusing on shared values. Finally, there is an intentional focus on leadership development, ensuring a pipeline of talented leaders to sustain our work in the long term.
