We are an unprecedented endeavor in which local and national funders collaborate in the work of education, relationship-building and co-investment in multi-faceted local Jewish teen education and engagement initiatives.

We believe the work of the Funder Collaborative, and the teen initiatives underway in each of the communities, can actively build the field of Jewish teen engagement. We strive to improve the existing landscape by driving deep change in local communities to catalyze broader impact.

Through the work of the Funder Collaborative and participating communities, new programs are being incubated, existing program providers are being incentivized to expand or deepen their work, youth professionals are receiving serious professional development – and all are taking evaluation seriously.   It is part of our mission to share all that we learn so that others may bring successful strategies to scale.
