Chabad of Rancho Mirage

Jewish Teen & Youth Education Programming Scholarships (2024-2025)

We aim to encourage children and teens to be empowered to adopt leadership positions in their public schools and in their daily lives. There is a vital and immediate need to engage Jewish teens with transformative Jewish experiences that enable them to create a deep connection to and understanding of their rich heritage, Jewish pride, and connection to the land of Israel. Our teen and youth lounge creates a safe, relaxed and fun space that teens can call their own, bringing teens off the streets and providing them with a safe haven to do their homework, play games, watch sports, and feel a strong sense of belonging. The outcome is not only a strong Jewish connection, but an anchor and stability during an uncertain and confusing time of life.
