Putting Electronics Aside, Teens Focus on Helping Others


Every summer for the past nine years, teenage volunteers from the Washington area come together to build a special project for a person with disabilities. During the week-long program, run by a local Jewish organization called Yachad, the teens learn valuable carpentry skills, as well as how it feels to help less fortunate members of their community. VOA’s Julie Taboh spent some time with this year’s volunteers.
