The B’nai Tzedek Youth Philanthropy Program is redefining what it means to be a Jewish philanthropist by showing young people that they have the power to make change in the world through a personal and engaged relationship to lifelong giving. This program is a tool for teens to give tzedakah, deepen their commitment to social action and be part of a program that models youth leadership.

YOU are why the program exists. Did you know that your generation is destined to become the single largest teen population in
YOU are the Y Generation.
Your generation shares many unique attributes, like asking the right questions and treasuring your uniqueness and individuality.
Your agenda is yours to make and your age group is known to be value-oriented in thought and in spending.
You are not a group of slackers and cynics. You are mature, edgy, optimistic, smart and responsible.
You know what you want and perhaps more importantly, you know WHY you want it…with good intentions and a global view playing a role in decisions.
NOW is the time to begin to set the precedent for the future of your community and the world.
The B’nai Tzedek YOUTH PHILANTHROPY Program embraces your generation’s quality traits, and looks eagerly to your generation as the sculptors of our collective future.
