Know an awesome teen who is changing their community for the better? If so, it’s time to nominate them for The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards, which is an organization that gives awards to Jewish teens working on community service/social change projects who demonstrate exceptional leadership and a commitment to creating meaningful change in the world. We’ve featured some of the 2015 recipients already.
The Helen Diller Family Foundation will recognize up to 15 recipients for its 2016 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards with $36,000 each. Since 2007, the Helen Diller Family Foundation has given more than $2.5 million to 70 Jewish teens from over 20 U.S. communities to further their volunteer projects or their education.
So, how can you nominate your hardworking teen? Fromw now until December 13, 2015, anyone can submit a nomination using a simple online form here. All Jewish teens who are 13 to 19 years old at the time of nomination are eligible. For further questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (415) 512-6432.
