A Program for Latino and Jewish Students


The Jewish-Latino Teen Coalition is a collaborative effort to build bridges between Southern Arizona’s Jewish and Latino communities, explore shared values, work toward mutual goals, appreciate differences, and cultivate future leaders. 


Each year the coalition is comprised of a diverse group of students from many high schools and backgrounds that commit to months of education to build knowledge and skills for advocacy and leadership.


Students participate in weekly meetings and workshops to foster mutual understanding, respect and civic engagement. In addition, students participate in cultural exchange, team building exercises, community service activities, meetings with community leaders, and political advocacy. 


Each year the program culminates in a Washington DC experience where students

  • Engage with National Advocacy Organizations
  • Lobby members of Congress
  • Explore our Nation's Capital
  • Continue Cultural Exploration
