(Sarasota-Manatee) Each year, The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee selects local high school students to participate in the prestigious Bob Malkin Young Ambassadors Teen Leadership Program (BMYA) and two-week mission to Israel. This educational and spiritual journey allows teens to develop leadership skills, explore who they are as individuals and as a team, and learn first-hand the importance of Israel to Jews around the world. In addition to the highly subsidized trip, the program includes regular pre- and post- mission meetings, social events, and leadership training, during which the Young Ambassadors will develop their relationships with one another and with Israel, and become ambassadors in our community.
To be eligible for this program, teens must identify as Jewish; be a current sophomore or junior in high school; and be a resident of Sarasota County or Manatee County for at least one year prior to applying. Deadline for application is January 20. To apply, go to http://jfedsrq.org/what-we-do/teens/teen-travel-opportunities.
