The StandWithUs high school department provides educational workshops, seminars, presentations, and resources for high school students across North America. In 2012, the StandWithUs High School Internship program began. This is a yearlong mentorship program for juniors and seniors in high school that educates them on the complex Middle East, prepares them with tools to combat antisemitism and difficult situations on future college campuses, and equips them with the knowledge to have meaningful conversations with those around them. StandWithUs also created the Teen Leadership Council, a semester-long program open to all ages in high school, that provides foundational education about Israel and the Middle East!
Starting July 1, 2021, the San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative will be transitioning under the new direction of the Jewish Federation of San Diego County. If you have any questions regarding community partners, grants, or offerings, please reach out to Molly Okun, Donor Engagement Manager.
