Young Leadership: The Future of Jewish Community

Who We Are

Looking for an energetic community of smart, philanthropic and well-networked peers in your city? Federation Young Leadership has you covered. 

We are 20-, 30- and 40-somethings who gather at social events, volunteer together to make our hometown a better place, and even travel together to far-flung places to help those in need.

We make a difference. And we have a great time doing good.


Taking Action

Young leaders are the future of Jewish community – and we want to have a role in shaping the way that future looks. We need your voice!

Get involved with a local volunteer project. Attend a networking happy hour. Travel to Israel or overseas with us on a mission. We can help you find a way to connect that feels right for you.
