Madison Hahamy (she/her), a Chicago Service Corps alumna, reflects on her experience — how it allowed her embrace her Jewish identity and effect real social change.
Justice is a personal obligation for me. College for me was mostly about research and writing essays, and it was hard to feel like any of it was making a tangible impact. With Repair, I can engage in direct service where I can make micro changes, and I’ve shifted my view to a more local perspective on change.
Ruth Blanc (she/her), Miami Corps Member
I felt my experience of humanity expand and my identity as a justice-seeking Jew strengthen. I felt my compassion deepen, and my understanding of society and the structures that hold it together unfold. Above all, the Service Corps gave me the tools to be impactful in an often scary and confusing world. Especially in times like these.
