We are excited to announce a new website where Jewish teens can discover summer experiences as unique as they are - FindYourSummer.org. FindYourSummer.org is the first site that connects Jewish teens to hundreds of programs - from surf camps to social action projects, international travel to art workshops - so they can explore their passions and expand their horizons. We know that summer planning starts early, and for us to reach as many teens and their families as possible, we need you to spread the word. Visit the site and, if you like it (which we hope you will!), go ahead and share it with your community members so they can kick-start their 2016 plans.
Here are a few of the reasons you and the families in your community should check out FindYourSummer.org:
- There's something for everyone. Teens in grades nine through twelve can filter their searches based on exactly what they're looking for in a summer experience, sifting through tons of unique options.
- It makes summer planning stress-free. The site is super easy to use and cuts down on research time by bringing everything to one centralized site.
- The experiences help teens explore Judaism. Programs on FindYourSummer.org give Jewish teens of all backgrounds the opportunity to explore and deepen their Jewish identities.
- We can help. Lots of the programs we feature offer scholarships for families in the New York metro area, making amazing summer experiences more affordable.
This project has been an inspiring collaboration between organizations and individuals who all believe that Jewish teenagers need something different. Together with UJA-Federation of New York and the Jim Joseph Foundation, our vision is for more Jewish teens to grow up having fun, meaningful, Jewish summer experiences - and FindYourSummer.org helps make that possible.
Visit the site to find information on 300 diverse programs - some old favorites and a few just starting to make a splash - and you will see that it's an incredible resource worth passing along. Let's help teens find the summer experience they won't forget!
