JLI Teens provides advanced Jewish involvement for high school students by challenging teenagers to incorporate Jewish thought into their everyday life. Each series incorporates ethics, philosophy, faith, history, community service, current events, and textual studies.
Teens have the opportunity to receive grants for completing essays showing an understanding of the topics.
Active Learning and Skills
We give teenagers a place to explore, grow, and participate through: Critical thinking, challenging activities, text analysis, public speaking, mock debates and driving questions, building their personal conviction and passion
Raise a Leader
While modern culture promotes conformity, we encourage teens to discover their own voice by sharing their opinions and challenging the ideas presented - inspiring them to become leaders instead of followers.
A Key to Success
Academic performance improves when students enter university with a healthy sense of self and a clarity of purpose. We provide the forum for students to think deeply about themselves and build a strong foundation of beliefs and values.
