Austin J-Serve will be held from 9 AM to 3 PM on Sunday April 7th, 2019, starting and ending at the Austin JCC Gymnasium. This year we have changed the registration process in order to help participants find a project that best fits their interests, and to create a meaningful experience for everyone. You will be asked to rank the issues you are most and least passionate about, and will be placed in a group with at least one of your requested friends. This google form will serve as your registration for J-Serve, and you will be receiving a confirmation email within a few days of your form submission. You will be getting a follow up email about a week before the event, informing you of what group you will be in. We are so excited for this years J-Serve; it's gonna be awesome! See you there!
