4Front, the Baltimore Jewish community’s teen initiative, is actively recruiting lay advocates, adult volunteers, to mentor teens and champion programming that helps to ensure teens find a sense of belonging in the Jewish community, as well as a meaningful launch into adulthood.
These lay advocates play a vital role in the engagement of the next generation. As part of the program, they meet and network with innovative thinkers in the field of adolescent development and discover what makes this teen generation different than those that came before and why they are crucial to meaningful Jewish and organizational life today and tomorrow.
At the end of four engaging sessions, the advocates receive microgrants to enhance the teen experience in their respective organizations. The sessions are the last Wednesday of the month, January to April, from 7-9 p.m.
Those interested in volunteering can contact 4Front executive director Rabbi Dena Shaffer at dshaffer@4Frontbaltimore.org or 410-500-5983, or register at 4frontbaltimore.org/programs/adults/ lay-advocates-program.
