JWW’s Activism Certification and Training program (ACT)
Through this program, young people can earn certification as official JWW Youth Activists by learning the skills of education, advocacy, and development first-hand. Working in Activist Circles, JWW youth activist clubs that have formed at various high schools and middle schools throughout California, students commit to completing three projects throughout the year: one each in the themes of Education, Advocacy, and Development. Over the year, these dedicated students are empowered with the tools and skills they need to advocate for positive change.
JWW has launched a new program for B’nai Mitzvah students, ACT 13! Through a unit of six lessons implemented in religious schools, students learn the skills of Education, Advocacy, and Development and earn opportunities to practice their new skills first-hand.
Summer Camp Programs
Each year JWW reaches out to young people attending area summer camps to engage them in action on the crises in Sudan and Congo.
ACT Koleinu- “Your Voice”

Youth Group Programs
Jewish World Watch partners with various colleges to bring cultural and influential programs to their campuses.
JWW launched a University Fellows program in the 2011-2012 school year. Each fellow is the JWW organizer on campus, educating and engaging their peers about these causes and implementing programming to expand the reach of JWW. Meet our fellows!
