Tween Leadership

These events were incubated in partnership with:

Here to have Fun, Make Friends, Grow Together and be Creative

The Tween Leadership Team is one part of an exciting new partnership between the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA and PJ Our Way, powered by GenMTL, to bring year-round programming to families raising Jewish kids ages 9-12. This exciting new initiative is made possible through a grant from PJ Library, a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, in partnership with Federation CJA.
