Know a teen with a passion for creating change? The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards is seeking nominations of Jewish teens who are actively engaged in social action. Up to 10 teens from across the country will be selected to receive $36,000 each for their exceptional leadership in projects that embody the value of tikkun olam, or “repairing the world.”
Bay Area philanthropist Helen Diller - the quiet force behind the awards - started the prestigious awards program in 2007 to support California Jewish teens, and just last year expanded the program nationally. To date, the program has recognized 40 Jewish teens across the country with nearly $1.5 million dollars to support their education and philanthropic visions.
Community members can nominate young leaders now for the 2014 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards through a simple online form. To nominate a teen or learn more about the program, visit www.DillerTeenAwards.org. All Jewish teen volunteers who are 13 to 19 years old at the time of nomination are eligible.
For questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 512-6432.
Deadline for nominations is January 5, 2014.
