With with close support from JFS staff and volunteer intern, Zach Blankstein, the teens were responsible for creating and executing a plan to collect school supplies and recruited a limited number of family and friends to fill 20 new backpacks at their individual events. We’re excited to share photos from this week’s events led by: Jessica Friedman, Mason Klein, Seth Korn, Juliana Singer, and Rachel Wolf-Wagner. Stay tuned for photos from next week’s amazing teens!
The Build-a-Backpack event is part of JFS’s Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success (PAGES) programming, formerly Reducing Achievement Gaps (RAG). PAGES is a unique, multi-tiered program focused on addressing the academic, social, and basic assistance needs of low-income children of immigrant families in Framingham.To learn more visit about JFS PAGES programming:
