for the Future

Mentoring Israel’s At-Risk Youth

In an effort to counsel and support at-risk youth in Israel, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland and the Jewish Agency for Israel established the Youth Futures program. Mentors guide children and their families in different circles of intervention: personal, familial, social, and educational, with an emphasis on full parental partnership.

Preparing the Next Generation of Leaders

The Federation’s Young Leadership Division (YLD) offers unique experiential professional and volunteer opportunities, as well as tailored educational programming through LEADS.

A Jewish Future on Campus

The Cleveland Hillel Foundation and Hillel at Kent State University, Federation beneficiary agencies, are engaging and empowering Jewish students through experiences that foster active Jewish life. By engaging undergraduate, graduate, and professional students through leadership opportunities and innovative programming, Hillel helps young adults navigate their college experience.
