Now Accepting Nominations & Applications: 2015 - 2016 Saltzman Youth Panel
Jewish high school juniors and seniors interested in strengthening the Jewish community and making the world a better place are encouraged to apply for the 2015-2016 Maurice Saltzman Youth Panel (SYP), a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. As a group, panelists recommend how to distribute $50,000 to programs in the Jewish and general community. Participants will develop their leadership and group consensus skills as they learn about the philanthropic process and responding to community needs.
Educators, youth professionals, and advisors are being called upon for nominations, to share this information with eligible teens, and to encourage students to apply.
Applications are due by Thursday, September 3, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. Applicants will be notified of their status no later than September 24, 2015. Nominations for potential panelists can come from rabbis, religious school directors, youth group advisors, friends or family. Affiliation with a Jewish organization or congregation is not required for consideration.
Selection to the Saltzman Youth Panel requires true commitment from its members. Selected students are required to attend seven scheduled sessions throughout the year, a presentation to the Federation’s Board of Trustees, Super Sunday, High School Division Campaign events, and conduct outside research and agency site visits.
