Message from the Teen Department

It is with great pride and joy that we get to work with the Jewish teens of San Diego at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, JACOBS FAMILY CAMPUS. Each year we witness the remarkable determination and tremendous capabilities of our young San Diego teens as they transition into community leaders. Our teen programs offer opportunities for teens to grow, learn, and thrive through activities that are social, cultural, athletic, service-oriented, and/or leadership training.  It is our goal to create emotionally well-rounded leaders of the future!

Whether it is joining our 50 member Teen Leadership Council (TLC) led by the Teen Executive Board, or by being a CIT/LIT at Camp Jaycee, the teens have shown their willingness to make a difference and become leaders. Other programs like JSERVE, Teen Screen, and the Like Israel Project connect teens from all over San Diego and teach ways to repair the world. It’s always fun to take our teens on the West Coast College Tour or the Big Bear Ski and Snowboarding Trip, and who can forget our awesome Dodgeball Tournament and volunteer opportunities like Senior Buddies! Additionally, we provide community service and social programming for our Middle School teens as well!

Lastly, the JCC Maccabi Games and Artsfest is always an experience of a lifetime.  There is nothing quite like being part of the San Diego Delegation representing our community in this celebration of Jewish culture, athletics, and fun!  These programs all cater to the growth of confident, able, and mature young adults.

There is so much to get excited about this year in the JCC Teen Department as we continue to unite San Diego teens in an environment that fosters self-esteem, Jewish identity, individuality, community, service, and leadership! We look forward to meeting you all at one or all of our programs in the 2017-2018 year!

Come by the teen office any time to chat or just say hi!
