This blog post from Stephanie Levine, an alumni of the North Peninsula Jewish Teen Foundation, tells about her role as a teen foundation alum. Stephanie recently participated in an alumni panel that spoke to current teen foundation leaders about the importance of being active in the Jewish community in college and beyond.
"Last week, I attended an alumni panel where eight alumni members of the North Peninsula Jewish Teen Foundation – myself included – participated in a lively meeting with the current Leadership Council (LC) of the Jewish Teen Foundations (JTF). The LC is composed of a select group of JTF board members and is charged with mentoring new board members and leading board meetings. All of the alumni had been through the program before, so we convened to offer advice to the current board to guide them through their year as LC members."
