About

You see the world these days, and you want to make it better. The good news — you can start right now. (Even before you can vote!)

You won’t be alone in your quest to do good. A great group of teens will be working right with you. Together you’ll learn the ins and outs of philanthropy from the best of the best at UJA-Federation.

Who are we? We’re the world’s largest local philanthropic organization. Yes, we’re big. Really big. But that means we can get a lot done. Every year, we help 4.5 million people across the world. We help New Yorkers, Jews around the world, and communities in crisis.

So if you’re interested in making a real difference through Jewish philanthropy and becoming the leader you’re meant to be, then CYPL is for you.
