J-Teen Leadership Co-Chairs oversee the Leadership Circle comprised of teens who want to play an active role in planning and implementing events. Skill building includes how to run a meeting, public speaking, consensus building and implementation.
Leadership positions are available to anyone who wants to take on the responsibility. J-Teen Leadership provides a platform for teens to develop the characteristics of effective leaders. Projects, meetings and conference calls are teen-led, so we can voice our opinions, listen to others, mesh ideas and create successful events.
J-Teen Leadership participants learn how to channel their leadership abilities to advocate for a better world. Teens are empowered to be change agents in a collaborative and fun environment. By speaking at schools and synagogues and writing articles teens learn the power of their voice and discover the willingness of adults to listen to them. Israel advocacy programs give our teens and alumni an opportunity to strengthen their knowledge and voice on behalf of Israel. Other advocacy initiatives include a teen-led synagogue inclusion program for the hearing-impaired and an anti- trafficking campaign.
