What is JYCA???
JYCA (Jewish Youth for Community Action) is an innovative leadership training program dedicated to empowering Jewish youth and contributing to social justice. JYCA forms a tight-knight group in which every individual is respected and valued, everyone's ideas are taken seriously, and enthusiastic participation is the norm. Being a part of JYCA means something different to everyone, but without a doubt, being a part of this organization will change your life.
* INFOSESSION is for youth aged 8th-11th grade!
* JYCA is proud to be Youth-Led, meaning that youth are involved at every level of the organization (from picking campaigns, to leading workshops, to fundraising, to writing this blurb!)
* JYCA is a safe space for people with various life backgrounds and experiences. JYCA participants have a very wide range of experiences with Jewish Practice/Culture!
"Personally, JYCA has had an enormous impact on my life. Besides enjoying being around a welcoming, tight-knit community atmosphere, JYCA has sparked an interest in activism that I didn't even know existed. Being educated about what is going on in the world we live in, and doing what what I can to try and mend some issues in it has made me very passionate and excited to help the world around me."
