Run by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT) is an educational program empowering Jewish high school teens to give them the tools to be global advocates in diplomacy as they address the critical issues like antisemitism and how to create peaceful ways to discuss challenging topics. The goal of the LFT program is to ensure students begin college with knowledge, tools, and confidence to engage in ongoing dialogue with their peers on campus, and to think critically about global issues.
The LFT program will consist of seven sessions from November – May. During the 2021-2022 school year, LFT will be in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New England (Boston), New Jersey (state-wide), New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Westchester/Fairfield.
