Building Future Leaders (BFL) – Grades 6-8
Building future leaders is a great way for your child to get involved in the community and complete those Bar/Bat Mitzvah community service hours. Meetings are once a month and include leadership building, teamwork and interpersonal skill development. Once teens graduate from BFL, they are automatically accepted into Teens as Leaders, our High School leadership program. For more information, call Harrison Peck at x361
Crossing Borders: Connecting Continents…Connecting Communities
Crossing Borders, a JCC Program funded by Partnership 2000, enables teens to explore their Jewish identity through exercises, leadership training, and interaction with fellow teens in Israel. The teens have been talking, emailing and sharing experiences with each other since October of 2004. This is an exciting intercontinental and intercultural program, with the possibility to travel to Israel. An interview is required. For more information, call Gayle at x324

TAL is a leadership training program for socially conscious, forward-thinking, and motivated teenagers.
