Jewish Community groups offer philanthropy leadership training for teens

Can a high school student make big change in the community? Yes!

Philanthropy Leadership in Training is a selective one-week leadership program from July 25-29. The program provides teens in grades 10-12 with the opportunity to learn about needs in the community and how they can make change. The young people build friendship and leadership skills as they participate in service activities and interact with community leaders throughout the week.

They explore their own values within a Jewish context, and conduct site visits to local nonprofits. The program culminates with the teens allocating thousands of dollars to community organizations. This is a great way to gain experience and also boost leadership skills for college! Teens also earn community service hours.

This is a one-week daytime program sponsored by the JCC and the Jewish Community Foundation. Visit www.jcfsandiego.org for more information. For questions contact Amy Scher at 858.279.2740 or email amy@jcfsandiego.org.

In addition, JCF is introducing a $3,600 teen award for community service. The Peter Chortek Leadership Award honors San Diego Jewish students in grades 9-12 who have made a significant impact on their community through an outstanding community service project. The award highlights high school students who inspire others based on the Jewish value of tikkun olam, “repairing the world.”

Applications are being accepted online now through Aug. 31. Win a $3,600 grant, plus $1,800 to give to charity.  See www.jcfsandiego.com under Youth Philanthropy or call the Jewish Community Foundation at 858.279.2740 for more information.
