Building Jewish Education

Summer Jewish Teen Philanthropy Boot Camp

BJE presents our summer mini-camp

For rising 11th and 12th graders seeking opportunities to do some good during summer break, BJE has an answer. BJE’s ATID is a two-day intensive for LA teens exploring values, advocacy topics and ways in which each person can make a difference, both individually and as part of a community.

On day one of camp, group participants will discuss their core values, learn about local and global issues, identify priorities and brainstorm how they can make a difference in the world. On day two, taking into account the priorities identified by the group during day one, teens will have the opportunity to research organizations whose missions are aligned with those priorities. They will pitch their favorite organization to one another and work together as a cohort to decide where to donate funds. 

Participants will be asked to make a minimum $36 donation to BJE (fully tax deductible) that will be redistributed to the organization chosen by the cohort on day two of the program. The program will be facilitated by BJE Teen Experiential Education Specialists Maya Aharon and Michal Kress.
