BJE Impact

BJE Impact ATID program

Join BJE for its inaugural Teen Philanthropy Winter (Virtual) Mini-camp!

Dec 08, 2020

On December 21-22, BJE will hold its first-ever winter camp. BJE’s ATID is a two-day intensive for LA teens exploring values, advocacy topics and ways in which each of us (both individually and as a community) can make a difference. During a winter break when people are forced to stay home, ATID is an opportunity for teens to engage in a meaningful project with their peers. The camp is a collaboration between BJE and the Jewish Teen Funders Network.

BJE Impact: Jewish Service Learning

For updates on  BJE Impact and BJE Teen Service Corps, as well as other service learning opportunities, please contact Experiential Educator Michal Kress at 323-761-8621. 

BJE Impact: The Center for Jewish Service Learning seeks to inspire Jewish youth to “Learn. Act. Reflect. IMPACT.” Our goal is for youth to engage in meaningful service opportunities that combine hands-on action, Jewish learning, and identity building, and we support and facilitate this through a variety of ways.

I think being a Builder of Jewish education is about laying the foundation for others to build on top of. I love the work that I get to do here, working with other educators to provide support, and working with teens.

What is unique about working with teens is that they’re at a stage where they’re trying to figure out who they want to be in the world, how they matter. They’re asking big questions and grappling with big ideas.

BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out"

Jun 22, 2016

BJE Teen Service Corps "sold out" its two week-long summer day camps that will engage 63 teens in community service and service learning centered on the theme, "Hunger and Poverty".  Campers volunteer their service and explore the many ways LA based organizations work to address these issues, followed by reflection activities led by Teen Service Corps educators.
