Diller Teen Fellows Toronto

Diller Teen Fellows is a yearlong leadership program that empowers teens in grades 10 and 11 from across the globe to explore their Jewish identities and become activated leaders of tikkun olam who serve as forces for good throughout their lifetimes. The Toronto Diller Teen Fellows program consists of monthly or bi-monthly workshops, 3 weekend retreats (shabbatons), a spring Seminar in Toronto, and a 3-week trip to Israel in July.

Hear from one of our alumni about her experience in Diller

Here are four reasons you should consider applying



Participants are challenged to define their strengths, weaknesses, and personal leadership goals. The result? A meaningful experience they can apply to real world challenges.

Jewish Identity


Participants are encouraged to wrestle with their notions of Jewish identity and those of their peers. The result is a deeper understanding of what it means to be Jewish, both individually and collectively.



A peak experience of the program is the three-week Israel Summer Seminar that brings all participants together. The result is a unique and engaging experience with the diversity, vibrancy, and complex reality of modern Israel.

Tikkun Olam


​Participants are given the opportunity to create and lead tikkun olam projects close to their hearts. The result is the understanding that we are part of something bigger than ourselves and that it's our duty to create the change we want to see.


AND...two amazing seminars:
