eJewish Philanthropy wrote about our latest grant for our new leadership program, Learn Together! Here’s the excerpt:

“jGirls+ Magazine, an online community and magazine written by and for Jewish girls ages 13-19, received a Signature grant for its new experiential leadership program, Learn Together, which will support individuals ages 16-22 in ‘examining power, responsibility and the issues that most deeply impact their lives through Jewish and gender lenses,’ jGirls+ Founder and Executive Director Elizabeth Mandel told eJP. ‘It will give them the tools and opportunity to share their areas of concern and expertise with broad audiences and center teen voices in the discussions and decisions that impact their lives. The program — which will seek participants representing the diversity of Jewish identification/affiliation, sexual orientation, geography, gender expression and identity, race, ethnicity and abilities — will also strengthen networks that will provide participants with professional and peer support on their leadership journeys,’ Mandel said.”
