Voices About

Voices: The Chicago Jewish Teen Foundation is a selective, year-long program for 25 Jewish High School students from across the metro Chicago area. Together they learn the ins and outs of professional philanthropy and grant-making through a Jewish lens, and allocate at least $25,000 each year to affect real change in the causes they care about most.

  • Use professional research techniques
  • Assess community needs
  • Manage a group
  • Work closely with REAL non-profits to meet their needs
  • Debate issues that matter to you
  • Challenge your perspective
  • Conduct professional interviews with Chicago's most reputable non-profits
  • Meet awesome Jewish teens from around the metro area
