Peninsula Jewish Youth for Community Action (P-JYCA)

The PJCC and Jewish Youth for Community Action (JYCA) are launching a new partnership to create an amazing opportunity for teens on the North Peninsula. We are excited to launch our first ever JYCA cohort on the North Peninsula!

JYCA is youth-led social justice and leadership development program for high school-aged Jewish activists. Teens who are inspired to make a difference are a great fit for this leadership training program where youth build strong, lasting friendships with one another and learn skills to help them make positive impacts in their communities.

Do you know a teen who…

  • Cares and is inspired to make a difference?
  • Wants to join a tight-knit community of like-minded youth to learn together, support each other, and get involved?
  • Is angry or afraid about what’s happening in the world?
  • Wants to explore the connections between Judaism and activism?

Teens are invited to join us for our first Youth-led Information Session

Sunday, December 9 · 3:00 – 5:00 pm · PJCC
This info session is a space for youth to learn more, experience the magic of JYCA, and get information on how to join. All interested high school youth are welcome! Look through the JYCA website to learn more, nominate a youth, or for the application. To RSVP or learn more, email Austin Weisgrau at jyca.austin@gmail.com.

Our staff will also be contacting you by phone to tell you more about Peninsula JYCA!

JYCA Participant Testimonials

“JYCA has let me connect with people who are looking to make the world a better place. With that connection has come power and inspiration and most importantly the belief that we can progress the world forward. I’ve learned about the deepness of the world and learned who I want to be at the core. JYCA is a home to anyone who wants one.”
—JYCA Participant Marielle

“JYCA has allowed me to form friendships that I know will last a lifetime. JYCA has helped me to build my leadership skills…. inspired me to get out into the community to work and fight for what I think is important. Most importantly, JYCA has taught me that I have a voice and it needs to be heard.”
