Our next Little Mensches event – as well as our 4 year anniversary celebration – is taking place on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 1:00-2:00 at the JCC. The children will be putting together “necessity kits” for the homeless containing items such as socks, granola bars, antibacterial wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, as well as cards containing information about where to get services in the area. We also plan to have crafts for the children to do at the event, along with music, food, storytelling, and lots of celebration for 4 years’ worth of good deeds.

The San Diego Jewish Teen Initiative convenes collaborative meetings every other month for Jewish Teen Educators. The purpose of this group is for professionals to continue to grow in their practice and to create a culture of community and collective impact. As a result of being part of this group, educators will be able to better serve their teens, programs, and organizations. As Community Partners, youth professionals commit to attending at least three TEC workshops during the school year.
