The Mitzvah Volunteer Program (MVP) gives Bar/Bat Mitzvah aged teens an opportunity to do a Mitzvah Project that will truly impact their lives. The program is a four week series of workshops that will teach the participants about giving back to the community and will empower them with important skills for interacting with and including their special friends. 

It will change the way participants view others, act towards one another, the community, society and more importantly, the way they view themselves. It is the perfect way for young teens to prepare for their Bar/ Bat Mitzvah.

The curriculum created for MVP includes inspirational speakers, multimedia presentations, hands on volunteering and other interactive activities. Following the course, each group creates a Mitzvah project together, using the resources and information from the program.
