The Jewish Community Teen Foundations are mentored and guided by a talented group of lay leaders, community professionals, philanthropists, Teen Foundation alumni, Jewish Community Endowment Fund staff and each foundation’s project director.
Advisory committee members meet three times a year to advise the teens and may also participate in the interview process to select teen board members. The advisory committee offers advice to the project director and teen board on outreach and policy issues and grant processes, as well as potential sources of additional matching funds.
