ANNOUNCING: A Cohort for Young Jews of Color, Indigenous Jews, Sephardi Jews, and Mizrahi Jews

USY is piloting a new opportunity for connection, leadership, and education exclusively for young Jews of Color, Indigenous Jews, Sephardi Jews, and Mizrahi Jews across the country. Together, these groups will develop leadership skills, hear from JOCISM speakers who are making a difference in diversity, equity, and inclusion in their communities, and unpack their intersectional identities using Jewish themes and values. Most importantly, they will develop bonds with other JOCISM youth from near and far. 

The application is now open! Applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis with a preference for applications received by August 31st.

Peer Leadership and Philanthropic Giving Programs for Jewish Teens Now Enrolling for Fall 2021 
  
Princeton, NJ, May 2021 — Gesher LeKesher is currently accepting applications from 11th and 12th grade teens (as of the 2021-2022 school year) to participate in this Jewish peer leadership program.  As Gesher "Madrichim" (Peer Leaders), teens lead a group of 7th - 9th grade "Talmidim" (Learners) in outreaches addressing trending topics from a Jewish perspective including friendships, the impact of social media, peer pressure, prejudice, and anti-Semitism on campus. 
  
This is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills which can be used in college and beyond while meeting and working with other Jewish 11th and 12th grade teens in the Greater Princeton Mercer Bucks area. Last year's Peer Leaders represented 13 area high schools. 
  
Gesher LeKesher meets 6 hours each month-2 Monday Night Trainings from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm and an additional Outreach time either Monday/Wednesday Night or Sunday Morning.  For more information, please visit 
www.jfcsonline.org/gesher-lekesher . 
 
The Jewish Community Youth Foundation is kicking off its nineteenth year giving back to local, national and global non-profits. The program brings together teens in grades 8 through 12 from the Mercer & Bucks Counties area. The Jewish Community Youth Foundation is a project of Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County and the Ricky and Andrew J. Shechtel Philanthropic Fund. The program is designed to have teens learn about, experience, and act upon Jewish values.  
  
The Jewish Community Youth Foundation is nationally-recognized and serves as a model for teen philanthropy programs around the country.  Each teen philanthropist donates their own money which gets matched and pooled with money they fundraise during the program.  Students meet to discuss Tzedakah and explore needs and the non-profit organizations who address them. At year-end, each group decides how their dollars will be donated. Since the Jewish Community Youth Foundation’s inception, the teen philanthropists have donated $930,600 to 68 different Jewish recipient agencies.   The program offers teens the opportunity to develop leadership and presentation skills. 
  
Registration is now open for all participants in 8th through 10th grades, and returning participants in 11th and 12th grades.  Space is limited.  For more information or to register, visit our website at:  www.jfcsonline.org/jcyf .
