About Diller Teen Fellows

Diller Teen Fellows is a unique international Jewish teen leadership program, sponsored by the Helen Diller Family Foundation, Kings Bay Y and its partners for teens who will be in 10th or 11th grade during the 2016-2017 school year.

Diller Teen Fellows seeks to create an international network of inspired, empowered Jewish teens who will serve as active, effective leaders with a strong Jewish identity, a sense of commitment to their communities, the Jewish people, and Israel, who are motivated to make the world a better place.

The Diller Teen Fellows Program serves as a premier leadership program for Jewish teens,  exemplifying excellence in pluralistic Jewish informal education. Teens and their communities are strengthened through exposure to and experience of Jewish values, Peoplehood, and pluralism.  Program alumni represent an international network of young Jewish leaders who creatively and collaboratively engage in enriching and improving their communities and the world.
