In key cities around the USA and Canada, StandWithUs has set up Teen Leadership Councils (TLCs) for high school students who wish to get involved in Israel-related activities and make a difference in their communities.
StandWithUs Teen Leadership Council participants will have the opportunity to further their knowledge, plan innovative Israel programs with their peers, and play a vital role in ensuring that teens in their community are connected to Israel. Student participants will engage in a four-month-long program which includes: individual and group learning about Israel, mentorship in leadership skills and community building, access to StandWithUs speakers and materials, and an opportunity to connect with other teens in the region with similar goals and aspirations.
Participant requirements include: Attend 4 online TLC chapter meetings led by StandWithUs High School Coordinator; Receive personalized mentorship from the StandWithUs High School Coordinator; Develop the ability to empower local teens to celebrate Israel and respond to anti-Semitism through programming opportunities; Practice creativity, program planning, and collaboration with other teen leaders; and Self-identify their personal growth goals and work with their coordinator to meet those goals.
Upon completion of the program, participants will receive an official certificate from StandWithUs recognizing their achievements and contributions to the StandWithUs Teen Leadership Council. Participants will have priority when applying the following year for the StandWithUs High School Internship program (if they are in grade 10 or 11) or will be prepared to comfortably take the reins of leadership for Israel the moment they start college (if they are in grade 12). They will be put in contact with their regional StandWithUs Campus Coordinator to continue to receive support from StandWithUs throughout their college career and beyond.
