Strong Women Fellowship

Overview

The Strong Women: Know Them, Be Them fellowship is a glass-shattering, educational cohort providing female-identifying Jewish teens in Atlanta with unparalleled access to strong women leaders, thinkers and voices shaping the world we live in today.

Each month teen participants will meet speakers, tour organizations, and engage in learning activities using Atlanta as a classroom. Guided by the educators from the JumpSpark professional team and female rabbis from the Atlanta community, the teens will become an interactive learning community committed to the growth and development of all involved. Through this fellowship, teens will engage in relevant and empowering learning that speaks to what it means to be a woman in 2018, helps young women grapple with the obstacles they face, and prepares them to be the leaders they can be today and in the future.

Fellows will also have the opportunity to write articles and create digital content for VOX ATL › , Atlanta's home for teen publishing and self-expression.

This fellowship is possible through a generous grant from the Jewish Women's Fund of Atlanta › and its mission to expand opportunities in the lives of Jewish women and girls via effective grant-making, advocacy, and education through a gender lens.
