Diller Teen Fellows
Diller Teen Fellows is Fellowship programme for Y12 that takes place across the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, South America, Israel and the UK. During the summer programme, Fellows all come together from around the world for a Diller Teen Fellows Congress.
Diller has six core experiences that are looked at throughout the year. These are: Jewish Identity, Jewish Peoplehood, Israel, Leadership, Tikkun Olam and Pluralism.
Each Cohort is made up of no more than 20 Fellows, and all Fellows receive the same year-long programming; ; in the UK this is across seven weekends with Fellows from any city in the UK. As well as this, each international community has a partnership community in Israel. For the UK, the partnership is with Mate Asher.
The Diller Teen Fellows experience is incredible and unique. It gives Fellows many life skills, and enhances university applications. Being part of a programme that is world-wide opens lots of doors and creates many opportunities as well as creating a strong group of people who encourage each other to be the best they can be.
Fellows are challenged to look at their strengths and weaknesses and set personal and group goals.
Fellows grapple with what it means to be a young Jew as part of a vibrant, international community.
Fellows have the chance to create and engage in meaningful projects and experiences for the betterment of the world.
The programme includes an extended visit to Israel with Fellows from all over the world.
Fellows explore what it means to belong to the Jewish people, with its many expressions and flavours.
The programme celebrates our different customs and denominations and welcomes all!
