Charity begins at home, which is why Federation is dedicated to training Fairfield County’s Jewish leaders and philanthropists of tomorrow.
Thanks to the generosity of the Kuriansky Family Foundation, the Kuriansky Teen Tzedakah Corps is a leadership program designed to instill teenagers with the knowledge and skills they need to become community leaders and philanthropists. 
Corps members meet one Sunday each month to learn about the fundamentals of leadership and Jewish values related to philanthropy and conduct a full grant allocation process. These teenagers learn by doing—instilling them with a sense of confidence, dedication, and commitment to their Jewish community.
The next cohort will begin in January 2024. NEW DATES COMING SOON
Program application and dates 2023-2024

Please reach out for more information or to ask questions about the program.
