Application Instructions

Application Deadline Extended! Please be sure that all applications and recommendations are submitted by February 16, 2020.

Teen JUST-US Boston is a paid non-residential, six-week summer social justice experience for rising high school juniors and seniors in the greater Boston area.

Interns work three full days per week at a local organization.  Teen JUST-US Boston participants spend two days each week together as a group, participating in leadership development and hands-on social justice activities.

Participants must be available for the full 6 weeks of the program from June 29 to August 7.  (Note that there will be no programming on Friday, July 3rd due to the Independence Day holiday.)

Teen JUST-US Boston is committed to selecting a diverse group of participants.  We welcome teens with a range of connections to the Jewish community (from highly active to limited/no activity).

To apply, please complete both parts of the application.  Part 1 asks for general information, your preferences around social justice areas (so we can better match you), and short essays.  Part 2 includes space to provide information about two people who can serve as recommenders for you.

We look forward to reviewing your application and welcoming an inspiring 2020 cohort!
