COMING SOON: The JTeen Project
The Sabes JCC, in partnership with the national BBYO and NFTY programs, have created a new collaborative initiative for Twin Cities Jewish teens to re-imagine and reinvigorate the Jewish Youth group experience. The JTeen project will bring dozens of Jewish teens together regularly – those already engaged and those not yet connected, breaking down barriers to participation and enabling Jewish teens to explore their broad range of interests within a Jewish framework.
NFTY and BBYO each bring a unique perspective to engagement for teens, yet share common core values – teen guided programming, focus on personal growth, identity enrichment and leadership development. Both programs value inclusivity, Jewish identity and tikkun olam.
The Sabes JCC will be hiring a Teen Director to lead this initiative and who will run the programming on behalf of the collaboration. Programming is scheduled at begin Fall, 2017.
Sabes JCC: enriching Jewish life, building Jewish identity, and strengthening our community through programming defined by Jewish values and culture.
NFTY: a movement that builds strong, welcoming, inspired communities through teen-powered engagement.
BBYO: the leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement aspiring to involve more Jewish teens in more meaningful Jewish experience.
