High school students and their families can explore college and Jewish life on campus on a Virtual College Road Trip, the second annual month-long series.
Each day in June, it offers student-led college tours, virtual information sessions with university admission offices and with Hillel professionals, who can share insights on Jewish and general campus life.
Teens are invited to #JumpOnTheBus where they can follow college student “bus drivers” for insider guides sharing the highlights of their campus and college towns—their favorite people and places, and what Jewish life is like there.
New this year are webinars for teens and parents on supporting wellness and mental-health during the college years; the myth of college rankings; gap-year opportunities and alternatives to a traditional campus experience; financial matters; and more.
The program is offered to the community for free by the Jewish Teen Education & Engagement Funder Collaborative, a network of national and local funders working to develop, nurture and scale new approaches to teen engagement.
