Watch a Day in the Life of a DOROT Teen Intern:
''It’s an incredibly fulfilling experience to reach out to the seniors in the community and help them with whatever they need assistance with. It's also an added benefit that, as teen interns, we can build relationships with other teens who love the same service work. -Maude, Summer Teen Intern
The DOROT Summer Teen Internship Program is jointly funded by UJA-Federation of New York and the Jim Joseph Foundation. The Jewish Education Project serves as lead operator of the Initiative.
