Project ImpACT

A Dynamic Youth Volunteering Programme

Post Bar and Bat Mitzvah is the perfect time for young people to give back to the community and make their unique contribution.

Launched in January 2018, the popular innovative Project ImpACT programme runs at several locations across the UK, with impactful volunteering opportunities on different evenings of the week, supporting a variety of Jewish and non-Jewish charities.

The programme educates and inspires teens to develop an outward and active approach to helping others less fortunate. The hands on volunteering opportunities also empower and challenge young people enabling them to develop useful life skills and enhance their personal character. Project ImpACT encourages the next generation to grow into community-focused leaders.

This year we are excited to be working with more communities and a growing number of young volunteers from across communities. We have also introduced our Project ImpACT Alumni Youth Ambassadors programme.

Participants are able to use their volunteering hours to contribute to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award among others.

November 2019 - New Bnei Mitzvah ImpACT groups opening for Year 8. Sign up will be available soon.

“Volunteering and social action should be an important part of every teenagers journey into adulthood”.
