Success Stories

Mikva Challenge had a great impact in my life. Like most young people during my high school years, I was searching for a sense of purpose, trying to find out what my calling in life was going to be. Mikva Challenge provided me with the opportunity to get involved. Many young people want to get involved in the community but don’t know how. Mikva knows how.
– Mikva Alum Henry Cervantes
