Social Innovation Fellowship

The Social Innovation Fellowship is a nine-month, hands-on entrepreneurship program that will inspire and empower Jewish teens to be changemakers in the community. Under the guidance of innovation experts and local mentors, fellows will develop an entrepreneurial mindset and skill set to create and implement their own social enterprise to tackle issues of equity and justice in their community. The fellowship offers a real-life, resume building experience that will include a kick-off innovation boot camp, workshops, mentoring sessions, and a winter global experience to connect with other innovative Jewish teens from Baltimore’s partnership cities.

Diller

The Baltimore Diller Teen Fellows is an 15 month international partnership that inspires and empowers Jewish teens to be active, effective leaders. We provide the tools, feedback, and mentoring they need to experiment, collaborate, and grow as leaders. Diller teens establish and explore their Jewish identity, a sense of belonging to their community, the Jewish people and Israel and a responsibility to the betterment of the world. Fellows gain a new perspective on Israel by creating connections with teens in Baltimore’s partnership city, Ashkelon. The program includes monthly workshops, weekend retreats, a 10 day Baltimore based seminar with Diller teens from Ashkelon, and a three-week Israel summer seminar.
