Teen JUST-US is a six-week summer social justice experience for teens in the greater Boston area.  It includes a three-day-per-week paid internship at a local not-for-profit.  The participants support the organization and work on a social justice project.  They spend the other two days as a cohort learning about social justice/tikkun olam from a Jewish perspective, building community, and engaging in field trips and service projects.

Current high school sophomores or juniors can apply.  They must be able to access public transportation (Red, Green, Orange, Blue, or Commuter Rail) as our cohort days are at Temple Israel in Boston and all of the internship sites are on the T.  There are no costs to the program and the teens receive a $1000.00 stipend at the conclusion of the summer.  The program dates for this coming summer are 6/26/23-8/4/23.  Teens can identify the social justice areas that are most important to them—and we do our best to match them with internships.  More information and the application can be found at  In addition, there is a video about the program on the home page and many blogs, written by teens, on the “Teen Voices” tab.  For more information, reach out to Amy Tananbaum, Executive Director at
