As we build our new program, it’s especially important to have strong leaders in the first cohort. And it’s for this reason — between the leadership skills and training you’ve gained through your programs, your experience with team-building and group-work, and your interest in social change — that we believe many NFTY alum would be great fits for the pioneering Tivnu Gap Year program.

Tivnu is so eager to have a stellar NFTY alum in our first cohort that we’re setting aside one spot for which we will take a $3,600 discount off of the program fee.

A couple of notes:

  1. Interested teens will need to apply by April 25th and be selected to receive this award.
