Teens Todays are Creative, Caring, and Seeking Community

Being a teenager isn’t easy.  We believe that helping Jewish teens find and pursue their passions while connecting with like-minded peers can help them find meaning in their lives.

JBridge is a hub of opportunities and resources for Jewish teens (and the people who care about them) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Designed to support teens in navigating their own unique path, JBridge helps teens experience all that being Jewish has to offer as they grow, explore, and discover who they are.

JBridge is a project of the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund’s: Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Initiative, a community-wide effort to engage more teens in meaningful Jewish experiences to support their growth, learning, and healthy development. In addition to sparking new opportunities for teens, we offer a wide variety of professional development opportunities through Jewish LearningWorks. We recognize that well trained, high caliber youth professionals are key to successfully engaging teens. 

The Teen Initiative is generously funded by the Jim Joseph Foundation and a consortium of Bay Area funders. The San Francisco-Bay Area is one of ten communities comprising the Jewish Teen Education & Engagement Funder Collaborative, an unprecedented collaboration of national and local funders working together to develop, nurture, and scale new approaches to teen education and engagement.
