Diller Jewish leader award applications open
Submitted By Lindsey Steinseifer
Now in the eighth year, the Diller Teen ÒTikkun OlamÓ (Repairing the World) Awards is a program that recognizes up to 15 young Jewish leaders with $36,000 each for spearheading volunteer service projects that are making a difference locally, nationally or globally. Recipients can use the grant as they wish, whether to support their current philanthropic work, explore new volunteer opportunities or further their education.
Teens may be nominated by any community memberÑteachers, rabbis, civic leadersÑanyone who knows the value of their project (except a family member); or the teen may even self-nominate. The Foundation will grant three $360 donations on behalf of randomly selected nominators for the not-for-profits of their choice. All Jewish teen volunteers in the US aged 13-19 years old at the time of nomination are eligible.
To enter, complete the simple online nomination form at www.dillerteenawards.org by Jan. 19. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (415) 512-6432.
