Canadian Young Judaea is proud to present its newest flagship program, JOLT™, the Jewish Outreach Leadership Training program for the second year! This year promises to be even better than the last with more community partnerships, outreach opportunities, and more unique workshops.
Exploring a broad and diverse curriculum of both hands-on and in-class sessions on social justice, JOLT™ inspires participants to become lifelong agents for social change rooted in the Jewish community. JOLT™ engages participants ages 12-18 in active social causes in the local Jewish community, partnering with various organizations to effectively bring about positive change.
Program participants can expect:
- Monthly workshops discussing various social causes and Jewish values in relation to social justice
- Monthly community outreach with various charitable organizations
- Invitations and opportunities to volunteer for special events to raise awareness and donations for selected causes
Priority registration for outreach events
- Community service hours, where applicable
Certificate of Program Completion at Annual Gala
Finally, older participants will have the opportunity to make a difference outside of their respective local communities on one of the program's global outreach trips, working with local Jewish charities, communities and organizations in Canada, the United States, South America, and Europe.
This exciting new program has limited spots for registration and the interest, demand and excitement surrounding it thus far have been tremendous! JOLT™ is set to launch just after the High Holidays in Fall of 2011. Full program details to follow in the coming weeks. For now, information is available by contacting the JOLT™ Office at 416.781.5156 (ext. 224).
