High school students, passionate about helping those in need, run their own philanthropic foundations, fundraise and make grants while exploring Jewish values that guide their work. A peer-led program, JTF puts teen voice and choice front and center as they choose a cause, conduct research, and develop professional skills to make a real difference in the world. Over the past 15 years, JTF teens have raised and allocated over $2.1M for local, Israeli, and global nonprofits doing tikkun olam. Applications open in April each year and programs run from October to May.
