CJL receives grant for teen education effort
January 4th, 2008
The Covenant Foundation, based in New York City, has given to the Coalition for Jewish Learning a three-year, $145,200 grant for “A Designer Education Program for New Millennium Jewish Teens.”
“Our philosophy is that today’s teens are very busy and quite sophisticated,” said CJL executive director, Steven Baruch, Ph.D. , in a release. “We plan to offer highly compelling educational experiences that allow students to drop in and drop out as their schedules allow.”
According to the release, the programming funded by the grant “is slated to start immediately, but probably will not be fully implemented until next fall.” JoAnne Gaudynski, CJL’s teen enrichment coordinator will staff the project.
CJL is the education program of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation . The Covenant Foundation is a program of the Crown Family Foundation and the Jewish Education Service of North America.
