WHAT IS THE TEEN CENTER?
The Teen Center is a vehicle for your Jewish journey. We're here to help you explore and discover for yourself the value of living a Jewish life. We'll help you figure out how to make intentional Jewish choices in your life, and then train you to lead others on their unique journeys. We do this by providing all different kinds of Jewish experiences ranging from weekend retreats and leadership training days, to Shabbat celebrations, to trips to theme parks with your closest friends, to Israel trips, to joining conservative Jewish teens from around the west coast at USY programs.
