Posted by jlifer on October 3, 2007
The Jewish Community Teen Foundations are Parents and teens! The deadline is October 15 to apply to be a part of the Jewish Community Teen Foundations, a project of the Jewish Community Endowment Fund.
The JCTF is a year-long program that teaches groups of teens to run their own nonprofit foundation and to become strategic grant makers. This program empowers teens to learn and make decisions together about how to raise funds and where to allocate them.
Last year the teens gave out close to $98,000 in grants to projects all over the world, including locally and in Israel. Teens say that this program empowers them to make a real difference in the world.
This is a unique program open to Jewish High School students in grades 9-11. Apply on line and check out our website at www.jewishteenfoundation.org for more information on the program.
