Applications closed for the 2024-2025 LFT Cohort. 
Applications for the 2025-2026 cohort will open Spring 2025.

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.

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

LFT consists of 8 high-level, engaging, and participatory training sessions once a month, in-person, on Sundays from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at AJC's office in Buckhead. A kosher dinner is served at each session. Applicants are expected to attend every session.
