Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT) enables young Jewish leaders to develop skills to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people, Israel, and human rights, and to serve as positive change agents for their peers and community.

Graduates of LFT enter college with the knowledge and confidence to engage in dialogue regarding antisemitism and Israel. LFT participants will learn about past and current Israeli affairs, challenges and opportunities facing global Jewry, and how to utilize strategic networks in advocacy.
