A Leadership Program

Orange County (2018) • Buenos Aires (2019) • Kfar Yona (2020)

In November 2017, the Merage JCC formed an exciting new partnership with our sister JCC in Israel, Kfar Yona and new partner JCC, Hakoaj Buenos Aires, Argentina. Together, the three communities created JCC Global Teen Fellows 2.0: A Leadership Program.

Each year we will each select a cohort of Jewish teens aged 14-17 years old to represent our respective communities in this teen leadership program. For several months, teens from the three communities will embark on a preparatory training process at their home JCC and then come together for a leadership seminar and fun filled global social encounter in Orange County (2018), Buenos Aires (2019), Kfar Yona (2020).

The goal is for our teens to experience Jewish Peoplehood, expand their world through global Jewish connections and to develop a foundation for becoming community leaders.
