Dear Friend,

We are really excited to be launching our tenth year with our very own local and growing CTeen chapter. It will begin on Tuesday, September 24, 2024. The program promises to be exciting and uplifting for teens everywhere, and we would be delighted to have your child join us for the CTeen experience. 

Our mission is to give your child three things:
* Jewish Network:* 
Teens love to socialize, they love to network. CTeen is an environment where teens can connect and befriend other Jewish kids their age in a fun, social setting. 

* Jewish Identity:* 
Using well-structured and teen-oriented programming, our meetings will inspire your child, and instill within them a strong Jewish pride. Ultimately, this will give them the inner connection to remain Jewishly active, both in college and beyond. 

* Jewish Values: * 
Studies show that by joining groups that emphasize community service and humanitarian projects, teens build their self-esteem, strengthen integrity, and maximize their cognitive development. In addition, our round-table discussions will promote strong ethics and communal responsibility, with a specific focus on valuable life lessons. 

It is estimated that only 20% of a teenager’s personal time is actually spent in a structured school environment. CTeen provides a fun opportunity for teenagers to transform some free time into meaningful time, constructively spent learning, giving, and interacting with other teens. 

This is an opportunity that no Jewish teenager should miss, and there's plenty of room for all their friends as well! Encourage your child to get involved, attend a group meeting, and experience this program first hand.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 941.752.3030 or email [email protected].

Looking forward to a productive year with your teen!
