Often for our congregation or partner organizations host our regional events. During these events, we are in need of host families that live in the surrounding area to volunteer to house teens who are attending the event. It is the hope that families who live within 30 minutes of the host venue will volunteer as host homes. If we do not secure enough spots for out-of-town participants, local teens will be required to stay in their own homes.

For these events, you will be housing the teens on Friday and Saturday night. Pickup at night is typically around 10:00-11:00pm and drop off in the morning is typically around 8:30-9:30am. You will receive an exact schedule in advance of the event.

You can house as many teens (NFTY requires a minimum of 3, including your own child) as you can transport safely with seat belts. Please know that you DO NOT need to provide beds. Each teen will bring a sleeping bag and pillow. All housing is single gender housing. Host families will need to provide Saturday and Sunday breakfast. Late night snacks are also encouraged!

To volunteer to house at our next event, Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD), which is being help September 15-17 in Baltimore, MD, please fill out this form.
