iCAN Teen Task Force

Jewish Federation’s iCAN Teen Task Force is an elite group of teens comprised of students from over 20 high schools including public, private, and Jewish day schools. The elite leadership group will meet up to twice per month to discuss today’s hot topics, use technology, and social media to advocate for Israel. Learn about the latest Israeli innovations, how to build coalitions with other student groups and so much more.
