The Federation sponsors lots of opportunities for teens to socialize, perform community service and learn together:

  • JROCband

    An opportunity for music-loving teens in the Jewish community! Teens in grades 8 through 12 who play an instrument or sing will meet weekly to engage, socialize and perform with other teens in a musical capacity. This program will allow teens to develop song leading and general leadership skills.

  • Zikaron

    Zikaron is an complete learning experience that includes a trip to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. for teens in grades 8 and 9.

  • A Training Program for Madrichim

    We are pleased to present this opportunity for teens to receive training to become more effective madrichim- teaching assistants- in partnership with area religious schools. Participate in a 4-part program for new madrichim, or a refresher class for returning madrichim.

  • Peer Leadership Fellows

    Peer Leadership Fellows is a national program where teens are trained to be catalysts to better connect their peers with Jewish life, in Rochester and beyond. With training and support, Fellows are paid to build relationships with uninvolved Jewish teens in their own communities, introducing them to the diverse menu of opportunities available to them.
