18 Under 18
18 Under 18, a new initiative by Springboard, The Jewish Teen Alliance of Chicago and JUF, honors 18 Chicagoland teens for their leadership and involvement in the Jewish community. We are proud of the JCC Chicago teen leaders who are included on this prestigious list.
The seven JCC Chicago teen leaders represent a wide range of interests and skills. They have distinguished themselves as Jewish leaders and role models along with working towards the inclusion of Jewish teens of all abilities; raising money and volunteering; teaching their peers a love of Jewish learning; or motivating others to be involved in Jewish life.
Mazel tov to the JCC Camp Chi, Jewish Student Connection and Project Teen: Seed 613 leaders included in 18 Under 18:
- Colman Adams
- Maddie Brim
- Gabriella Cooperman
- Rebecca Greenstein
- Quincy Hirt
- Kelly Kogen
- Lillie Murphy
We are fortunate to have these teens, and so many others, involved in JCC Chicago programs. We have experienced first-hand the tremendous contributions they make to the Chicago Jewish community, their high schools and beyond. We look forward to seeing all they accomplish in the future.
