Summer 2017 – Spring 2018



What: Young Judaea’s Los Angeles Teen Leaders Fellowship offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have an active role in shaping the future of Young Judaea in Los Angeles. Teen Leader fellows will be given the tools and resources to develop a program for their peers in Los Angeles that fits with Young Judaea’s mission:

Young Judaea’s Mission: Young Judaea provides high-quality and thought-provoking experiential programming through which Jewish youth build meaningful relationships with their peers and develop a lifelong commitment to Jewish life, the Jewish people, Israel and each other. Our life-changing camp, year-round and Israel experiences foster an open and pluralistic environment that encourages mutual respect and understanding between diverse groups of Jews and empower our chanichim (participants) by imbuing them with the self-confidence, independence, problem-solving skills, knowledge, and other tools they need to make informed choices for themselves and the communities they will help to shape.

Tools and Resources provided for teen leader fellows

Up to $3,000 in scholarship to an amazing 4 weeks (*shorter program available) at Tel Yehudah, Young Judaea’s National Teen Leadership camp.

Tel Yehudah Mission: Tel Yehudah inspires Jewish and Zionist youth from around the world to experience and embrace the diversity of the Jewish people in a joyful and diverse community while training them to become leaders who effect positive change for the Jewish people, Israel and the world. Read more about Tel Yehudah HERE.

10 Months of close mentorship with the Los Angeles Program Coordinator. Mentorship includes weekly calls, leadership training, and hands on practical application of leadership skills through the implementation of a Young Judaea LA program.

In summary, Los Angeles Teen Leader Fellows will attend Young Judaea’s Teen Leadership camp in New York, then return to Los Angeles as an active member of the Los Angeles Young Judaea Teen Board, where they will work under the mentorship of the LA program coordinator to plan, execute and recruit for YJ events in order to help expand Young Judaea’s presence in the community.


The Fellowship opportunity is open to LA Jewish Teens entering grades 9, 10, or 11.

Tel Yehudah Experience – June 21st – July 19th, then local YJ board work September 2017 – June 2018.
