About the Project:

CCM is proud to announce "Project Ezrach." Ezrach means citizen in Hebrew. Project Ezrach aims to enable teens to become changemakers: to see, do, and feel many facets of being citizens of our world who work to bring justice. On this journey together teens will learn from non-profit leaders about issues facing our world, become advocates about issues they care about - including a chance to lobby local policy-makers and commit to a sustained volunteer project to see change. The program includes a capstone service-learning trip in Spring Break 2022, to deeply immerse ourselves in change-making as it's lived on the ground.

 

Students will pick an issue that they are passionate about ie. the environment, racial justice, gender issues, etc., and learn how to fight for what they believe in. All projects and trips will be for and planned by our teens. The cohort will be guided by Jewish values and Jewish texts.

 

Apply: Applications and nominations will be open from the beginning of February until April 1st

Details: This 16-month journey will consist of cohort meetings twice a month (the first meeting is on April 18th). This project is open to any teen in grades 8-12th, in 2021-22.

Costs: The cost of the 16-month program is $650, but does not include the Spring 2022 trip. The estimated cost (depending on travel, plane tickets and COVID) for the Spring Break trip is $1800 including land costs, plane, housing and food.  CCM does not turn anyone away for lack of funds.  Please apply regardless of financial situation.  Payment plans and scholarships will be arranged upon acceptance into the program.

This initiative is funded by a generous grant from the SF Jewish Federation's Teen Initiative.
