J-Serve, the International Day of Jewish Teen Service, will be held May 1, 2016. The J-Serve Teen Committee is collecting items for 150 teens to create Comfort Bags for foster children, refugee children and the homeless.

The goal is to pack 400 Comfort Bags at J-Serve. Can you help donate some or many? Do you have a contact with someone or a company that might donate bulk items? Would your company like to be a named sponsor of J-Serve? You can also make a cash donation to support the teens make their goal a reality.

We need the following items:

  • Backpacks and Duffle Bags
  • Throw blankets
  • Re-usable Water Bottles
  • Socks – men’s and women’s sizes
  • School Supplies – spiral notebooks, binders, paper, pens, pencils, markers
  • Toys/Activity Books – stuffed animals, small toys, playing cards, crossword/soduku books, journals, coloring books, crayons
  • Books – books for children ages 5-17, may be gently used
  • Toiletries – lip balm, sunscreen, combs and brushes, tampons and pads

All items, except books, must be new. Collection bins will be located in many synagogues, schools and at CAJE, 300 S. Dahlia St, #101. For more information, contact Karen Silverman at jHub, info@jhubco.org or 303-951-8492. Stay tuned for registration information.

jHub Mentors Officially Launched!

JHub_Mentor_RGB_HiRez

 

Last week, jHub held its first launch event, pairing together the first mentor and mentee matches. It went off without a hitch thanks to our amazing staff, Jessica Schpero and consultant, Ken Broerman and the enthusiasm and excitement of our mentors and mentees!  The matches took part in ice breaker, relationship building exercises, trust walks, communication building activities, and exercises in Jewish values.

Each match made plans for next month’s first meeting (and was given a snazzy new jHub mentor T-shirt to sport around town!). The room was filled with smiles and laughter throughout the morning. Parents were in attendance for the beginning and end of the match launch event. They met the mentors and  exchanged contact info for scheduling. All in all, the day was a great success! We are very excited about the launch of the jHub Mentor Program!

Two of our amazing mentors!

jHub Mentors has filled 5 out of the 12 mentee spots with the Winter launch. We are continuing to accept applications to fill the remaining 7 spots that will bring us up to capacity.
