SUPPORT FROM

LFT enables young Jewish leaders to develop skills to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people, Israel, and human rights around the world, and to serve as positive change agents for their peers and community. AJC’s goal is to ensure that graduates of the program enter college with the knowledge and confidence to engage in ongoing dialogue regarding antisemitism and Israel. Topics covered include past and current Israeli affairs, challenges and opportunities facing global Jewry, and how to utilize strategic networks in advocacy.

LFT consists of up to eight high-level, participatory training sessions once a month on Sundays from 5:00 to 8:00 PM beginning in Fall 2020. A majority of sessions will take place at AJC Atlanta’s office in Buckhead. All sessions will include a Kosher dinner.

Topics covered will include past and current Israeli affairs, challenges and opportunities facing global Jewry, and how to build strategic relationships and utilize them in advocacy.

Application

Admission to this program is highly competitive and will be limited to 25-30 students. Participants will be selected based on their application and a phone interview. There is no cost to participate.

Applications are due Sunday, April 19.
