NewGround MAJIC Program For Teens Named
"California's 2013 Faith-Based Organization of the Year"
On Wednesday, May 22nd, NewGround's Teen Leadership Program "MAJIC" received a prestigious honor from the Office of the Governor of California. This program that was just an idea no more than eighteen months ago has now been named "California's 2013 Faith-based Organization of the Year" for cultivating a commitment to service an volunteerism in the greater Los Angeles area.
There are many service projects you can do as a teen leader. But there are few opportunities to transform your community while building your resume for college.
Each year, a select cadre of teens is chosen to participate. After a fall retreat, students meet 1-2 times per month to learn about how organizations in their communities respond to major social issues. During the spring semester, students will then develop their own joint Muslim-Jewish service project. Upon completion of the fellowship, council members will be bestowed with a certificate from the City of Los Angeles in appreciation of their willingness to move beyond differences and contribute to improving intergroup relations in Los Angeles and strengthening Muslim-Jewish relations.
Apply by June 15th.
