Diller Teen Initiative takes top honor

j. weekly


Our Diller Teen Initiative took first place for "Jewish youth program" in this year's j. Readers' Choice Awards. To quote the j.:

"A new generation of Jewish community leaders is coming into its own, and Jewish youth programs are here to help. These programs emphasize community-building activities, lasting friendships and a chance to discuss Jewish life. And did we mention they are loads of fun, too? It’s 11 p.m. for Nicole Miller of the Diller Teen Initiative, but, she says, “the night is still young.” She’s accompanying the Diller Teen group on their annual three-week trip to Israel funded by the Helen Diller Foundation; they meet with Israeli teens they’ve kept contact with all year on their trip. The Diller Teen Initiative was founded in San Francisco, but became so popular that it now has branches in 10 cities across the country, soon to be expanded to 14."
