JYCA connects young Jewish to social justice through strategically looking at the power they hold as Jewish youth to make social change. The most transformative organizing I've ever participated in was as a young organizer in college. Youth are best positioned to make change in their schools and local communities because they lead with the moral authority of the next generation.
From founding Berkeley Stop Harassing to supporting the campaign to get Oakland Police Department out of Oakland High Schools, JYCA youth have made big changes. Investing in them will create a better Bay Area and world.
I will match all donations up to $1,200, so you can double you impact!
SUPPORT BAY AREA JEWISH YOUTH TODAY!
JYCA is a program created and led by youth to work towards progressive social change. We seek to educate, empower and inspire political, social, environmental and cultural awareness and action in young activists, guided by Jewish values of social justice.
We educate, empower and inspire young activists by building a community based on trust, respect and cooperative process. In this safe environment we are able to use Jewish perspectives to examine ourselves and the world, inspiring greater political, social, environmental and cultural awareness and action.
CONTRIBUTE TO JYCA AND TRIPLE YOUR IMPACT!
There has never been a harder time to be a teenager than right now. JYCA provides a safe community for youth to find personal and communal care. JYCA provides a safe space for youth to discover and embody their most authentic selves and is an explicitly safe and supportive space for young Jews who identify as LGBTQ+ and/or JOCSM (Jews of Color, Sephardic and Mizrahi). JYCA staff serve as mentors and trusted adults in our youth's lives. This year there were two youth shootings in Oakland within two weeks; JYCA staff were there to check in with every youth in our program, making sure they were ok and being there to talk and process.
Your contribution will support our youth and provide a safe and welcoming Jewish space!
JYCA is unique in that it is truly youth led. Our youth determine, develop and facilitate their own social justice education workshops. Our youth organize their own campaigns/actions and lead in partnerships with other organizing groups. Our youth even sit on our board of directors and guide the course of our organization. At every level of JYCA we are actively fighting against Adultism (the oppression of youth, often resulting in the ignoring, silencing and dehumanizing of young people) and striving to empower youth to believe that they have the power to make a difference.
Your gift will provide unique youth-leadership opportunities that will help JYCA youth grow into the movement leaders of tomorrow!
JYCA Youth are changing the world today! This year JYCA youth have led phone banking actions to Get Out the Vote in key swing states, and led actions to support the displaced residents of Wood Street. While our youth are currently determining what the main campaign of the year will be, it is sure to be inspiring and impactful in the Bay Area.
Your support will power up our organizing and action efforts as we strive to have a positive impact in our community!
JYCA YOUTH ARE COUNTING ON YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
