The Satell Teen Fellowship for Leadership and Social Activism aims to help Jewish adolescents become more involved citizens through a trip to Israel, meetings with government officials in Washington, D.C., and more.
The Satell Teen Fellowship for Leadership and Social Activism, now in its eighth year, is seeking motivated and inspired Jewish high school juniors and seniors who want to make a difference in the community.
The fellowship, a partnership between the Satell Family Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, is geared to help Jewish adolescents become more involved citizens by giving them access to leadership programs; engage in conversations with prominent civic and business leaders; participate in interactive meetings with government leaders in Washington, D.C.; and visit their counterparts in Israel.
The fellowship’s namesake, Edward Satell, is a local entrepreneur and philanthropist supporting or sponsoring 33 varied projects, including the National Museum of American Jewish History and the National Liberty Museum, which last month named him a 2014 Hero of Liberty Award recipient.
The application deadline for the 2015 Satell Fellows is Nov. 14. For information, visit: www.satellteenfellowship.org.
