Training Program Seeks Teens to Attend AIPAC Conference
JewishColumbus is currently looking for applicants for its Israel Advocacy Teen Training Program. This program is for students in grades 10-12 to help develop leadership skills, enhance credentials for college and participate in activism that impacts our community. A limited number of spots are available for teens to apply before the January 25th deadline. Participants will prepare for a trip to Washington, D.C. with two sessions on advocacy in Columbus.
On March 24-26, 2019, the group will join 16,000 pro-Israel supporters, including 200 high school students, for the national AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) Policy Conference. AIPAC is a bipartisan organization of citizens that lobby on behalf of the U.S.-Israel relationship. At the conference, participants will learn how to advocate for Israel, hear from top Israeli and American policymakers and lobby their Congress representative and senators.
Students pay $200 to help cover airfare. All other expenses are covered by JewishColumbus.
This program is made possible by generous support from the Diamond Family Foundation. For more information, please contact Lin Raveh at Lin@JewishColumbus.org
