Mission & Vision

Springboard was created to help teens connect with other Jewish teens while having fun, making friends, and discovering new experiences. Through Springboard teens can learn about exciting and meaningful ways to get involved in the Chicagoland Jewish community. There are so many great options including social programs, youth groups, volunteering, travel, school vacation experiences, Hebrew and cultural education and leadership development. Through Springboard teens can find the experience that matches their unique skills and interests.

Springboard was created in partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation and the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Chicago. Springboard partners with teen professionals and organizations throughout metropolitan Chicago to introduce more teens to high quality Jewish programs.
