PanimWorks Impact DC



DC JAM serves high school students interested in Judaism, politics and community service. Participants work on service projects, learn about advocacy from guest activists and policymakers, and attend courses in such subjects as economics, ethics, climate study and education policy. Boys and girls, who board at George Washington University, take advantage of the local and national institutions of Washington, DC. The four-week Internship Bridge enables participants to shadow a professional at a city advocacy organization. Each student may earn credit towards his or her high school's community service requirement.
