H.O.P.E. 2014

For the fifth year in a row, a select group of seventh-graders from Yeshivat Noam in Paramus, came together to learn what it means to be on the board of an organization. H.O.P.E. participants came away with valuable leadership skills, concrete ways to decide fund allocation, and knowledge of the agencies in in need in their community.

This year's 23 students decided to allocated their $2,300 in funding to Shirat Devorah, an ALS foundation that provides the community with opportunities to raise awareness and funds for ALS research and support for the families in our communities who are struggling with the affects of the disease.

Since the start of Areyvut's Jewish Teen Philanthropy programming at the JCC seven years ago, 164 program participants have allocated $39,300 in funding to agencies across the United States and Israel.
