Teen Hunger Action Project – DHAP
Do you want to make a difference in someone’s life?
Hunger is something we see and face everyday. DHAP is a community service project for teens to learn, respond, and advocate on hunger and homeless issues in New York. Students deliver food to the homeless and learn how to advocate on behalf of the less fortunate. It’s a great mitzvah and also a great way to earn community service hours for your school.
Students meet one Saturday night per month (6:30pm – 10:00pm) with Jewish educators and rabbis to study and to serve.
6:30 – 7:00 Pizza Dinner & Havdalah
7:00 – 7:45 Guest speakers and study session
7:45 – 8:15 Prepare meal bags and life packs
8:15 – 10:00 Deliver to the homeless with adult supervision
2017-18 Dates: Oct 21, Nov 18, Jan 20, Feb 10, Mar 10, Apr 21, May 19

Testimonials: “Our son had a truly meaningful evening on Saturday night. He came home saying that “it felt good”; being there for others can feel good, as I know in my own work. He also loved being with those kids and wishes it were more often than once a month (!). Thank you so much for exposing him to this world of civic engagement, and for the warm atmosphere you create with the kids.” – Parent of a 14 year old.
