Who are We?

We are TASC (Teen Action Service Corps). We are 59 teens from the Scotch Plains area. We go to 7 different schools, and come from 6 towns. We were brought together to put our passions into action, in addition to learning about leadership and philanthropy. We are fundraising money, in order to fund new and innovative programs and projects at the JCC of Central NJ. Possible program areas include but are not limited to Early Childhood, Seniors, Aquatics and Cultural Arts. We believe that we have a responsibility to our community and to practice tikkun olam, repairing the world.

What is TASC (Teen Action Service Corps) Program?

The TASC Leadership Seminar, for students in grades 9 - 12, is an experiential learning program that incorporates intensive leadership symposiums, group volunteer experiences and social programming in a fun year-long adventure!

This program aims to be a vehicle for teens to grow their leadership skills through real-life experience and ultimately leave a lasting legacy at the JCC.

"A leader is someone who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way."    - John C. Maxwell

This quote will be the framework for this year's TASC program.  Our goal is to give participants the knowledge, skills and values to make each person a successful leader in their Jewish community and their community at-large.  In order to accomplish this, participants will engage in four intense Leadership Symposiums. Participants will also take part in group service projects in our community through Jewish Family Services of Central NJ and the Jewish Federation of Greater Metrowest. These projects include (but are not limited to) The Big Give, MLK Day of Service, J-Serve Day of Service (planning and participating in the day), The Community Food Bank in Hillside and Touch a Truck at the JCC of Central NJ.
