Created for middle-schoolers, these programs provide a safe afterschool hangout space for kids to be with friends, find trusted mentors, do their homework, participate in a weekly community service initiative, play games and enjoy a weekly Friday Shabbat and movie. Enrichment programs include swimming, fitness, ceramics, yoga and dance. Additionally, there are workshops for parents and teens. Teen programs for high-schoolers serve the whole teen. Through arts, sports, culture, LGBTQ, leadership and activism, the programs foster creativity, individuality and independence. Teens come together with their peers in safe and supportive environments and prepare for their future and learn to be leaders in their community. Opportunities include camp counselor leadership training, social justice programs and a queer Jewish teen group.
