Programs for Teens: The Place to Be


At the Weinstein JCC, your teen can find a lot of really interesting ways to get involved, stay active and do community service, whether it’s for school or just because it’s a good thing to do. You can also get involved in programs, classes and sports teams, where you’ll make friends you’ll have for life.

Tikkun Olam Super Stars (TOSS)

As a part of TOSS, kids in grades 6-8 can earn community service hours and help the community.

Tikkun Olan Super Stars is designed for altruistic, community-minded middle schoolers who are looking to improve the Greater Richmond area while earning community service hours for school. Based on “Tikkun Olam,” the Jewish concept of repairing the world, TOSS participants will engage in monthly service-learning programs that teach the value and meaning of giving back to the community. Programs include volunteering for Richmond community events, food banks and charities.
