An alarming number of antisemitic and anti-Israel incidents take place on college campuses each year, posing a serious challenge to Jewish students and to their Jewish identity.
To prepare students to face these challenges with confidence, the Anti-Defamation League of Orange County/Long Beach and the Rose Project of Jewish Federation of Orange County have partnered to develop The Youth Leadership Initiative. Launching this fall, this dynamic eight-week program provides a platform for a select group of high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to learn with experts as they explore their Jewish identity and connection to Israel while gaining knowledge and skills to counter antisemitism and Israel delegitimization on their future college campuses, on social media, and beyond.
