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.

Applications for the 2021-2022 year are now closed. Applications for 2022-2023 will open in spring of 2022.

Students who will be sophomores or juniors in high school during their LFT term are eligible to apply. There is no cost to participate. 

LFT will consist of high-level, engaging, and participatory training sessions once a month on Sundays. 

The safety of our participants is our highest priority. Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, our fall 2021 sessions may take place virtually. If and when it is safe to meet in person, we will aspire to do so. 

For virtual meetings, we will meet from 5:00-6:30pm. If we are able to meet in person, we will meet from 5:00-8:00pm at AJC's office in Buckhead. A kosher dinner will be served during in-person sessions. 

Read from our LFT alumni in the Atlanta Jewish Times about becoming Jewish advocates.
