Thank you for your interest in JF&CS TeenSafe!

TeenSafe is JF&CS’s response to dating abuse in the Jewish community and beyond. By increasing community-wide awareness and strengthening a community-wide response, TeenSafe works to build safer, healthier and more just communities.

TeenSafe offers teens and the adults in their lives the language and tools they need to recognize abuse in an intimate relationship and know how to respond if they see, hear about, or experience it.

Jewish Teen Initiative Peer Leadership Fellows

New this year, our TeenSafe program is now a focus area of Combined Jewish Philanthropies’ Jewish Teen Initiative (JTI). TeenSafe Peer Leadership Fellows (students in grades 10-12) create outreach campaigns, organize community activities, and present workshops intended to reach peers, parents, and educators. The program emphasizes leadership skills development, community building, and creating a path for social change.
