An Amazing Offer
I am pleased to present you with a way to bring Areyvut to your school, synagogue, JCC and/or community at a reduced rate. We are offering a special price of $1,000 for our volunteer agency and hands-on fairs.
A volunteer agency fair is like an expo at a conference and features agencies that offer hands-on on-going volunteer opportunities. At the fair students and their parents meet with representatives to learn about opportunities they have and how they can get involved with the agencies on a regular basis. Each participant receives a booklet highlighting the agencies and the opportunities offered. The booklet is an important resource that helps participants connect to the appropriate agency once they decide what they want to do. Areyvut staff is available at every program to help participants brainstorm ideas and to suggest additional agencies as necessary. This program is geared towards middle school and high school students and a volunteer agency fair can also feature:
A text study addressing the importance of chesed.
A hands-on fair features on-site hands-on activities to benefit local community agencies. For this program participant’s visit various stations that offer hands-on opportunities for them to perform mitzvot that can help others. This program is suitable for all ages.
Both models can be combined.
Areyvut personalizes each program to best meet the needs of the host agency and works with them to develop goals for the program and criteria for the agencies. Areyvut identifies appropriate agencies, reaches out to them, coordinates and implements all aspects of the program. The host agency is responsible for marketing and for providing the audience (and Areyvut highlights these programs on our website and in our e-newsletter and encourages you to open them to the broader community).
The Fine Print
We look forward to hearing from you and to bringing Areyvut to your community.
