The Dr. Harry & Alice Statland Young Leadership Institute connects young Jewish professionals to their community in a deeper, more meaningful way. Focusing on the individual, we create a space where each participant can explore their Jewish identity and discover who they are as leaders. The Statland Leadership Institute helps young professionals build their network, develop skills that will enhance their own leadership style, and feel empowered to affect change.


In this concentrated program, participants work through the steps of becoming a Jewish leader. From taking the first steps into leadership, to breaking down the barriers to getting involved, and ultimately, taking action to build an even stronger community that is represented by all generations.


Experiential opportunities include: volunteering with a partner Jewish organization, networking and connecting with community leaders, shadowing a board meeting, and meeting one-on-one with a community leader.
