PROGRAMS

JYCA's programming is created and led by youth and focuses on empowering youth to work towards progressive social change within a framework of Jewish values. We run our cohort programs LGiT and OG in the East Bay and on the Peninsula throughout the school year, and we have year round programming for Jews of Color, Sephardi, and Mizrahi youth in JAM.
