IMPACT is a community of young adults, ages 20s, 30s & 40s, who share a commitment and passion for Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) and building a strong Jewish community with the Tampa JCCs & Federation. The Federation raises funds to support critical efforts to help vulnerable people in need in Tampa, in Israel and in countries around the world.
Our first Volunteer with IMPACT cohort spent October 2018 volunteering with Sweetwater Organic Community Farm. The group worked weekly to maintain the farm’s nature trails, which are used as educational teaching tools for local school children who visit the farm on field trips. At the end of the project, the group met with JCC preschoolers as part of the school's Week of Kindness, shared with them why they volunteer and gave them a tour of their completed project.
Our second cohort met throughout 2019 to help the Tampa Jewish Federation re-imagine a program to welcome newcomers to the Tampa community.
The group met monthly to work together to design and create the initiative and work with the Federation to bring the program to fruition.
