Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT), AJC’s innovative leadership fellowship for Jewish teens, empowers young leaders to build advocacy skills for college and beyond on behalf of the Jewish people.
Learn to act confidently against antisemitism
Analyze current events through a Jewish lens
Engage with diplomats, elected officials, and leading policy experts
Improve their knowledge of Israeli history from a variety of perspectives
"Going into LFT, I thought that I already knew a lot about Israel and advocacy. LFT allowed me to gain more perspectives on issues I thought I was well versed in, as well as how to stand up for the issues that are important to me."
– Nathan, LFT DC Alumnus
“I appreciate all that the program did for my teen's growth and development as a young Jewish adult!”
