Social Action/Tikun Olam
Operation 18,000 is a new volunteering initiative for USY! The goal is to have all USY members collectively reach a total of 18,000 volunteer service hours for this year. This may seem like a ton of hours, but through regional and chapter programming and going out into your community to lend a hand, this is more than possible.
Each USYer will log their hours into an online database, stating how many hours they volunteered and what they did. Everyone will be able to track how many hours USY as a whole organization have volunteered and watch as we reach towards 18,000! To log hours, go to www.usy.org/operation18000,
Start thinking about ways to volunteer, add your hours to the Google form, and begin to log the amount of hours you volunteer! Don’t forget to take pictures of you volunteering or write up a short blurb about one of your volunteer efforts and send it to USYOperation18000@gmail.com.
Coming soon will be other exciting aspects of Operation 18,000, like databases filled with places where you can go out and volunteer around each chapter and ideas for volunteering in ways that match what you like to do.
