The Cincinnati Jewish Teen Collective

The Cincinnati Jewish Teen Collective (CJTC) is focused on today's Jewish teens, acknowledging Generation Z's incredible potential and unique challenges, in order to foster a community landscape which prioritizes teen input and experiences. Every individual and organization engaging teens plays an integral part in achieving this goal and together, we aim to elevate the experience of those teens already engaged and connect more teens to each other and our community. As part of this goal, CJTC also seeks to provide opportunities for professional growth for individuals working with today’s teens. CJTC is part of a 10-city collaborative, to learn more please visit:

CJTC is co-funded by the Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati and the Jim Joseph Foundation.
