Overview of the Serve the Moment Service Corps
Are you a courageous and compassionate leader looking to make a difference? Serve the Moment mobilizes Jewish young adults and college students (ages 18-29) through a part-time stipended fellowship program from September 30 - December 11. We plan to have 240 Serve the Moment Corps Members volunteering in-person or through virtual volunteering. Serve the Moment Corps Members will earn a stipend. Our goal is to inspire 100,000 acts of service and learning across the US, with a focus on addressing food insecurity, educational needs, unemployment, racial justice, and social isolation and other pressing needs which have been exacerbated by COVID-19. Serve the Moment is a program powered by Repair the World.

  • What is currently motivating you to apply for a semester of service? What are you hoping to learn and achieve this fall?
Videos should be no longer than 2 minutes in length and written responses should be no more than 250 words.

* As a Note: We do not judge an application by video quality or an ability to video edit. We are happy to accept someone speaking into their smartphone or a camera just as much as someone who wants to create an edited video.
