For Kids Only: Big and Small Ideas to Make a Difference
Anyone can make a difference – whether it’s through education, advocacy or community service, you can make a difference no matter what your age. You can pick an issue and start a club at school, help clean up a local park, donate to a soup kitchen or shelter, you can even write a letter to an elected official. Visit our NCJW Kids page for ideas and resources.
One Book One NCJW
Read along with NCJW this programming year (2019-2020) as we discuss An American Summer, written by Alex Kotlowitz author of There Are No Children Here. “Kotlowitz spent the summer of 2013 researching how gun violence shapes the city. An American Summer is the result of that; a reporting mosaic that brings together the stories he encountered that summer. It is a painful chronicle about an extremely violent city based on the narratives of those who managed to survive its streets.” (NPR Book Review). Join us for a series of programs which may include in-person and online discussions, films, podcasts and more. Visit our website for more information as it becomes available or email [email protected] with “One Book One NCJW” in the subject line to be notified of scheduled
