Are you an outstanding rising high school sophomore or junior who is interested in Jewish advocacy?
LFT enables young Jewish leaders to develop skills to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people, Israel, and human rights around the world, and to serve as positive change agents for their peers and community. AJC's goal is to ensure that graduates of the program enter college with the knowledge and confidence to engage in ongoing dialogue regarding antisemitism and Israel. Topics covered include past and current Israeli affairs, challenges and opportunities facing global Jewry, and how to utilize strategic networks in advocacy.
Applications for the 2020-2021 LFT cohort are now closed.
LFT will consist of up to eight high-level, participatory training sessions once a month on Sundays from 5:00 to 8:00 PM beginning in Fall 2020. A majority of sessions will take place at AJC Atlanta's office in Buckhead. All sessions will include a Kosher dinner.
"I wanted to express my gratitude for this past year and the amazing LFT Program. [LFT] was one of the most interesting and beneficial programs I have truly ever participated in." - Zoe Siegel, 19-20
*These dates are subject to change, but we will keep you informed with as much notice as possible.
**In addition to the sessions, LFT students will be invited to participate in LFT Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. in the Spring of 2021. They will join LFT students from around the country to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people and Israel with senior government officials and policy experts.
***Our LFT students are also invited to take part in supplementary AJC opportunities.
