What is Springboard?

Springboard was created for Jewish teens of all backgrounds who are interested in having fun, making friends, and discovering new experiences. Through Springboard you can learn about exciting and meaningful ways to get involved in the Chicagoland Jewish community.

  1. School Break Programs
    Through one-of-a-kind school break programs you'll get to develop new skills as you delve deep into a topic of your interest, while making new friends and cultivating your own Jewish identity.
  2. Find the Perfect Jewish Opportunity
    Jewish activities where you want them, when you want them, how you want them! Springboard’s community calendar is full of opportunities to connect with other Jewish teens and explore our local community and beyond.
  3. Teen Engagement Specialists
