Community-Wide Teen Programs

Looking for additional Jewish Teen Programming in the Bay Area? Here are some quality programs we recommend.

___________________________________________________________________________

Diller Teen Foundation

Established in San Francisco in 1998 by the Helen Diller Family Foundation, the Diller Teen Fellows  program is San Francisco’s premiere leadership development program for Jewish teens in 11th grade. Now operating in 26 communities in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, and Israel, the goal of the Diller Teen Fellows program is to develop future generations of active, effective leaders with a strong Jewish identity, commitment to the Jewish people, respect for pluralism and love of Israel. Together with our sister community, The Upper Galilee Diller Teen Fellows, we explore four guiding principles:

  • Jewish Identity
  • Community Service (Tikkun Olam)
  • Leadership
  • Israel

Diller Teen Fellows gain the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, explore their Jewish identity, connect with Israel through a peer partnership and create a social action project of their choosing.

 

The Next Chapter

The Next Chapter enables high school youth to develop profound connections with Holocaust survivors. By participating in the program, students build a special community of social responsibility and genocide awareness and are awarded 40 hours of community service.

Through the Next Chapter program, students learn how to:

  • Meet with Holocaust survivors and pass on their stories
  • Study the history of the Holocaust and patterns of genocide through text, archival items, and film
  • Create a personal reflection project

The Next Chapter is offered both in San Francisco and on the Peninsula. Students will meet in a seminar once every three weeks from January through May. Students will hear from different Holocaust survivors with unique experiences several times throughout the semester.

March of the Living

For students in Grades 10, 11, and 12

The International March of the Living is an annual educational program, bringing individuals from around the world to Poland and Israel to study the history of the Holocaust and to examine the roots of prejudice, intolerance and hatred.

Since its inception in 1988, more than 260,000 alumni from 52 countries have marched down the same 3-kilometer path leading from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day – Yom Hashoah – as a tribute to all victims of the Holocaust.

For more information: http://www.motl.org/


Jewish Teen Foundation

For students in Grades 9 to 12

The Jewish Teen Foundation is open to Bay Area local, Jewish-identifying, 9-12th graders (and 10-12th for leadership positions) who want to better understand the world, the people that inhabit it, and the ideas that can improve it.

Working collaboratively with like-minded peers driven by shared Jewish values, teens get energized by addressing their generation’s major social issues, all while exploring concepts, finding meaning, and expanding their horizons.

Teens who have previously participated in JTF are welcome to apply either as a participant or a Leadership Council member. Leadership positions require at least one year of participation in JTF or equivalent leadership and/or management experience.

For more information: Jewish Teen Foundation
