I am a second-year member of the Jewish Community Teen Foundation, serving for the South Peninsula board. I have learnt all about how to run a charitable foundation, from fundraising to grant-making. I have developed a passion for giving that will hopefully stay with me for my whole life. Importantly, I have learned to give effectively based on Jewish values and through a Jewish lens. Last year the board gave to communities in Israel, Belarus, Sudan, Niger, South Africa, and Eastern Africa. This program is great because as the teens involved not only learn leadership skills and how to run a smart foundation, but make a huge impact on communities around the world.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Making a massive impact while growing as a giver and a person.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
