Some of the 2016-17 TAPpers! 

Especially created for Los Angeles metro area 9th-12th graders, The Jewish World Watch Teen Ambassador Program is an innovative approach to leadership skill building.

The program provides an opportunity for high school students to gain leadership and advocacy skills while furthering their knowledge about genocide and mass atrocities. JWW staff, educators, and guest speakers will teach Ambassadors about the devastating events that are taking place in Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other parts of the world and instill the community organizing and advocacy skills that teens can use to encourage their peers and community members to take action for change. 


TAP meets monthly on Sunday mornings from 9:30am -11:30am.  There will be one (1) mandatory meeting each month for a total of 9 sessions. Each meeting will be held at the JWW office unless otherwise indicated.
