The J.Team Teen Philanthropy Program is comprised of a select group of 9th & 10th graders who meet monthly to learn about amazing non-profits, which service our community, Israel and other countries around the world.  Throughout the school year, participants will meet community leaders, experienced philanthropists, engage in in-depth discussions on Jewish values of giving while building the skills and knowledge to make these important funding decisions. At the end of the year, members decide together where to donate their funds. Our concluding celebration will give members, their families and fund recipients an opportunity to celebrate an amazing year of learning and giving.
