The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announced today its next cohort of Young Leadership Division (YLD) Microgrant Program recipients. Through its Microgrant Program, YLD looks empower Jewish young adults to build community and have an impact by hosting innovative experiences for Jewish Clevelanders ages 22-45.

YLD Microgrant Program recipients will receive up to $1,000 to support their projects per calendar year. Selected applicants identified a problem, challenge, or need to address using YLD Microgrant funding. Projects connect young adults to Jewish Cleveland through one of Federation’s four priorities: care for one another, prepare for the future, share our perspectives, and repair our world.

“This year’s YLD Microgrant program recipients showcase the creativity of Jewish Cleveland’s young adult community,” said Abbie Pappas, YLD board chair. “The YLD Board and I are honored to be able to select programs that are engaging, diverse, and will reach a significant number of Jewish Clevelanders.”
