Youth Engagement


Youth Engagement

We have well-established programs for college, high school and middle school students to work with us.

Junior Ambassadors

Junior Ambassadors are 5th-8th graders who become independent volunteers and leaders at Mitzvah Circle. Working side-by-side with their peers, they learn how to pack personalized boxes of necessities for families in crisis.

Throughout the year, Mitzvah Circle offers special Junior Ambassador-only volunteer shifts on Sundays, after school, and during weekdays in the summer months. Junior Ambassadors commit to volunteering at least 6 times over the course of a year.

Teen Ambassadors

Teen Ambassadors are students entering 9th – 12th grade. This unique leadership program trains high school students to act as guides for new volunteers on Sundays, evenings and days off from school. After receiving at least 10 hours of training, students make a commitment to volunteer at least once a month for a year, and many of our Teen Ambassadors continue serving throughout high school.

New groups of Teen Ambassadors begin in June/July and in December.

Internships for College Students

An internship with Mitzvah Circle is an excellent opportunity for students seeking real-world experience in all aspects of a grass roots, non-profit organization. Interns will work directly with staff, volunteers, and other social service organizations.

Mitzvah Circle hosts undergraduate and graduate interns every semester – spring, summer, and fall. Internships are in Social Work, Non-Profit Administration, Marketing/Event Management, and Facilities Management.
