This past summer, JUF Israel Experiences & Youth Initiatives staff, in collaboration with the BBYO Panim Summer of IMPACT program, ran their first Philanthropy Bootcamp. The program was for high-school teenagers from all across America. The camp taught the Jewish teens about philanthropy, helped them develop leadership skills, and engaged them in discussion about tzedakah and tikkun olam. One of the main goals of the program was to show the teenagers the importance for philanthropists to think about their donations in a calculated and strategic manner.
I applaud this program and think that its goals and efforts are truly laudable. Areyvut looks forward to working with them in the future.
