ABOUT US

The Jewish Teen Education & Engagement Funder Collaborative is an innovative philanthropic experiment. In an unprecedented collaboration, national and local funders work together to develop, nurture and scale new approaches to teen engagement. Informed by up-to-the-minute research and data, and drawing on the collective strength of local organizations, multi-faceted initiatives in ten communities across the country aim to reverse the trend of teens opting out of Jewish life in their high school years.

The Funder Collaborative is deeply committed to enhancing and sharing learnings that shape contemporary approaches to Jewish teen education and growth. Early research and insights have led to a richer understanding of modern teenagers, spurring inspiring new engagement methodologies which reflect this understanding. The Funder Collaborative invests in shared frameworks and tools which may be adapted by any experiential or immersive program, and shares its learnings widely with the goal of advancing the entire field of Jewish teen engagement.

COMMUNITY-BASED TEEN INITIATIVES

WHAT WE’RE LEARNING

Communities participating in the Funder Collaborative together have embarked on a linked, multi-year experiment. To understand and reflect on our progress and outcomes, both locally and across the ten communities, we invest in two concurrent evaluation efforts. Local evaluators study regional initiatives, and a Cross-Community Evaluation aggregates and analyzes key learnings on a national level.

We believe the insights we glean can have wide-ranging implications for any city or organization working to improve its Jewish teen engagement and education. We will publish all reports, case studies, and research here as they become available.
