The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards celebrate tikkun olam--“repairing the world," honoring the outstanding leadership of young Jewish changemakers who are engaged in ongoing service projects or initiatives. Each year, up to 15 teens are selected to receive $36,000 each to further their project or education.
The Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards are open to Jewish-identified youth ages 13-19. Applicants must demonstrate leadership via a specific community service project or initiative that is already underway and may be nominated or apply directly. Examples of past recipients’ work can be found on our website, www.dillerteenawards.org. All application materials are accepted online. Deadline for the 2019 Awards is January 8, 2019.
