Temple Emanuel has built a ground-breaking partnership with the West Coast Religious Action Center to transform our teens into thoughtful civic leaders. Meeting monthly over the course of a year, students collectively choose an issue of focus for the year. They develop skills in advocacy, philanthropy and volunteerism as they learn from non-profit leaders, clergy and politicians on how they can use their power to create change. In addition to allocating grant money through the MATCH teen philanthropy program, these teens culminate their year with a trip to Washington D.C. with clergy to advocate for policy change with their senators and representatives through the Religious Action Center's L'Taken seminar.
