Teen Ambassador Program

Become a J Teen Ambassador!
Help Shape the Future of Teen Programs at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC and Earn Community Service Hours 

The J Teen Ambassador Program is designed so that existing and future teen program at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC can be shaped by teens themselves. We want teens to have their voices heard. Teen feedback is critical to the ongoing success of each one of our teen programs. 

What does it mean to be a J Teen Ambassador? 

J Teen Ambassadors will volunteer their time to contribute ideas and feedback to program areas that are of specific interest to them.  They will have the opportunity to improve upon existing programs and influence programs under development.  Teen feedback may be obtained through meetings, group discussions, or surveys. Volunteer/service hours will be given based upon level of participation.  

There are many areas of programming where J Teen Ambassadors can contribute including but not limited to: the new fitness and aquatics center, the new culinary studio, arts and culture, inclusivity/ diversity, and more.   

How to Become a J Teen Ambassador 

Registration for the J Teen Ambassador program is open to teens in grades 8-12. Teens will select areas of interest on the registration form and will then be contacted by Barrie Skalsky to discuss current opportunities in that area and service hours that can be obtained.
