TOV Teens About

The Tikkun Olam Volunteer Teens (TOV Teens) Network is JUF's connection point for teens who want to donate their time to help others in need. TOV Teens offers programming and opportunities for teens and their families to connect to the Jewish community by taking part in tikkun olam, the Jewish concept of repairing the world one good deed at a time.

Whether you are interested in doing a one-time volunteering opportunity or looking for a year-long b'nai mitzvah project, TOV Teens will help find a meaningful and fun way for you to give back!

TOV Teens also has volunteering focused programs created specifically for Jewish teens in grades 6-12. Learn more about Camp TOV, Mini Camp TOV and Monthly Teen Volunteering (MTVs).
