Ilene Blau Teen Leadership Institute (IBTLI)

The Ilene Blau Teen Leadership Institute at the East Valley JCC is designed for teens entering grades 9-11.

East Valley Jewish teens must register and be interviewed in order to be accepted into each cohort.
Teens who are selected will participate in monthly workshops, team-building excursions and community service projects.

Teens that complete the cohort will receive a stipend award, continued internship opportunities at the EVJCC and continued participation in IBTLI. 


The Teen Leadership Institute is an EVJCC program supported by BBYO, Temple Emanuel, Temple Beth Sholom of the East Valley and ASU Hillel.

This program is partially funded by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation (JCF) of Greater Phoenix.
