Jewish Teen Board


The Jewish Teen Board is a project-based learning experience in which teens run a real Foundation by selecting causes they care about facilitated through a meaningful and structured process. Participants are guided through the process of fundraising and taught about grant-making. The program culminates in a Granting Ceremony where students present the money raised to selected organizations.

  1. Why join the JTB: It's a wonderful way for students to gain leadership and consensus building skills and meet other teens from across the community. Also, each JTB board member will receive 40 community service hours. Not bad ha?
  2. Who Should be nominated/apply: Jewish teens entering grades 9-11 in the Fall with an interest in philanthropy, leadership, and helping to transform the world around them.
  3. Be Part of an International Teen Giving Program: Learn about real world issues and be empowered to make an impact. The Jewish Teen Board is an opportunity to give back to the community in a new and exciting way.
  4. Be Involved in Volunteering: Come face to face with organizational and communal leaders who are making a difference to our world.
