Internships for San Diego Jewish Teens

SDJTI Peer Leaders Fellowship

The SDJTI Peer Leaders Fellowship is in its fourth year. 

These Jewish teen leaders represent various organizations throughout the San Diego Jewish community. 

Over the course of the year, these leaders connect with peers in their identified social networks, build and strengthen relationships with each person, and act as a catalyst for deeper engagement in the broader Jewish community for their peers. 

They are communal connectors – educating themselves about the many different opportunities and resources that exist for Jewish teens in our community, and helping to identify the opportunities to connect others to them.

The 2020-2021 Application period is closed. 


The San Diego chapter of StandWithUs serves greater San Diego County.

Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to educating people of all ages about Israel and combating Antisemitism and extremism that often distorts the issues.

StandWithUs programming and initiatives in San Diego help engage the community and educate students at local high schools, middle schools, and college campuses, including UC San Diego and San Diego State.

We are proud to be an integral part of the pro-Israel and Jewish community in San Diego.
