Teens are Making the World a Better Place Through New Jewish Federation Program
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Teen Giving Project wrapped up a successful inaugural year this past week at the program’s first granting ceremony. This year the participating ninth- and 10th-graders raised more than $10,000 and have chosen to fund three programs: HIAS Pennsylvania Refugee Resettlement Program, JEVS Human Services Lasko College Prep Program and St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children Community Oral Health Initiative. The ceremony was an opportunity for the 10 participants to celebrate their accomplishments with their families and community members, while also sharing how the 10-month program made a lasting impact on their lives.
