Hey JCYF. Hope you’re enjoying your experience thus far! To keep this short and sweet, have fun while participating at JCYF, but also think about and appreciate the values that it teaches you. It’s a program that goes beyond philanthropy and helps give you a greater connection to the Jewish community. From the causes and organizations that you support to the friends with whom you share the experience with, JCYF is a great and unique program. Learn from it. Appreciate it. And enjoy!

Message to Current JCYF Participants:
JCYF gives students the opportunity to gain a new perspective on the world and the Jewish guidelines on how to give. If they take advantage of this, they will be much better informed citizens and will be able to use their problem solving skills in every day life. The Jewish Community Youth Foundation was the best high school experience that I had and has lasted me long past graduation.

Learn about and donate to organizations in which you are interested and care about. Try to avoid choosing organizations that you think “look good,” in other words be discerning; though wherever you choose to contribute will be the right choice because you chose to contribute!
