There is something different about a program that doesn’t end after a few hours—waking up surrounded by your peers, sharing meals together, and learning through a variety of shared experiences over the course of multiple days. Immersive experiences deepen identity, friendships, and connection to your Jewish community. Federation aims to make Jewish experiences accessible to every teen in San Diego through grants and awards.
Immersive Experience Grant
We are pleased to offer subsidies for San Diego Jewish teens participating in an immersive experience. Immersive experiences include 2+ day Jewish retreats, conferences, trips, and other experiences outside of San Diego County. If you have any questions about your programs eligibility please contact Molly Okun, contact information below. Subsidies are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted.
