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.
Applications for the 2022-2023 LFT program are now closed.
To stay updated on AJC news and programs, including the release of next year's LFT application, please sign up for our email list.
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 high-level, engaging, and participatory training sessions once a month, in-person, on Sundays from 5:00-8:00pm at AJC's office in Buckhead. A kosher dinner is served at each session.
