Teens at the JCC
The Teen Department promotes a community where teens forge social and Jewish connections. Multiple programs designed to create opportunities for social action, creative arts, socialization and athletics give teens a place to find their strength and form positive relationships. One goal of the department is to serve as a link to existing organizations, including BBYO, USY, NFTY, different schools and communities. Come connect with your Jewish teen community! New programs are always being created to best serve this dynamic and growing group.
