"ReachOut! has been an incredible opportunity to make friends and engage with the Jewish community in Boston. It also helped me get involved with Yachad! The participants are so sweet and fun, and I learn something new every week. I've started volunteering for other programs and events at the organization as well, and I'm grateful that ReachOut! enabled me to build that relationship."
—Deborah Steinberg, RO! Volunteer at Yachad
"ReachOut! is a fantastic program. Volunteering is so meaningful and ReachOut! gives you a way to do it that is easy and fun, while connecting with other Jewish young professionals. I have made wonderful friends through ReachOut! and have really enjoyed how the program has helped me build my sense of Jewish community in Boston. I also really enjoy spending time with the seniors at Hebrew SeniorLife; connecting with them and hearing their life stories is such an enriching experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world."
—Jennifer Atlas, Volunteer at Hebrew SeniorLife and ReachOut! Committee Co-Chair
"I've had so many positive experiences through volunteering with ReachOut! I've bagged groceries at Daily Table, helped middle schoolers with their homework in the South End, and served meals to those who are hungry in Cambridge and Boston. Best of all, I've met lots of other Jewish young professionals in the process!"
—Rebecca Brand, Past ReachOut! Committee Co-Chair
At the Charles River Cleanup, I was able to see the difference I was making while having a really fun day in the sun with friends! Even though we were a small group, we successfully filled 33 buckets of invasive water chestnuts. It was amazing to witness a previously covered section of the river completely cleared at the end of our few hours. I can’t wait to volunteer more with ReachOut!
