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 anti-Semitism and Israel.
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 2019. A majority of sessions will take place at AJC Atlanta's office in Buckhead. All sessions will include a Kosher dinner.

In addition to the above dates, LFT students are invited to take part in supplementary opportunities. These programs are not yet on the calendar, but we will keep you informed with as much notice as possible.
Topics covered include past and current Israeli affairs, challenges and opportunities facing global Jewry, and how to utilize strategic networks in advocacy.
LFT applications are due on Friday, April 19.
