As an outgrowth of the successful Tri Center Project WCJCC is launching the
"Global Jewish Connections Fellows program." A new and unique program designed
for young volunteer leaders from Jewish Community Centers the world over. The
program trains Jewish leaders to acquire a global Jewish perspective and to
become social entrepreneurs in their own local community. The 13 fellows
represent New York, Israel, Argentina, Mexico, Bulgaria, Russia and Ukraine.
The program consists of online study, an intensive seminar in Israel and
Budapest, a personal project developed with a mentor and is supervised by a
worldwide Steering Committee.
The program is supported by the UJA Federation of New York, the Jewish Agency
for Israel and the Israel New York Connections office. The program is
implemented in partnership with PresenTense.
