Philanthropy Leadership Training

Supported by The Larry Pidgeon Endowment Fund for Young Philanthropists

A curriculum teaching philanthropic education available for Jewish educators around San Diego to implement in their organizations.

PLT Camp

During the school year, the Jewish Community Foundation provides a curriculum to support formal and information Jewish education for local synagogues to teach teens who are dedicated to social justice about philanthropy. Teens learn how to give wisely, strategically and effectively by exposing them to the needs of the community, all through a Jewish values lens. If you are a Jewish community organization interested in implementing this curriculum, contact Claudia Ehrlich, Director of Philanthropy.

In partnership with the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center’s
Camp Jaycee, students spend one-week in the summer visiting some of the most innovative and effective non-profit organizations in San Diego. Throughout the program, students are immersed in learning the nuts and bolts of how the non-profit sector operates. At the culmination of the intensive, weeklong service learning program, students are provided funds by the Foundation to award a grant to the non-profit(s) of their choice.
