Empowering Baltimore’s Jewish Teens
From immersive, year-long cohorts to one day adventures, 4Front provides engaging opportunities for Jewish teens and the adults who care about them to connect, grow, and create change together for the future of our community and beyond.
As Baltimore’s comprehensive teen initiative, 4Front strives to elevate the voices of our community’s teens and support them as they navigate and create their Jewish journey. Based on four pillars, advocacy, innovation, education, and collaboration, 4Front provides resources and tools for teens to confidently play an active role in their communities.We empower teens to take a seat at the table, be heard, and make a positive impact in the world.
At 4Front, we build meaningful relationships with Jewish teens and support the adults who care about them, so they may have a strong foundation on which to thrive. Through 4Front’s signature teen programs, as well as parent and youth professional initiatives, we aim to create a safe environment for teens to live out their Jewish values and explore their identity in ways that are meaningful to them.
Strength in Partnerships
Through partnerships with Jewish thought leaders, local and national organizations, and professionals, we serve as the connecting link for our community’s youth. We serve and bring organizations and families together to work alongside each other as catalysts for change and growth. We believe in the power of youthful voices impacting our communities and strive to elevate all the voices working towards this mission.
4Front is proud to be housed and managed by the JCC of Greater Baltimore who offers continuous support for our team and community. We couldn’t do what we do without the generous contributions of the Jim Joseph Foundation and the support of the Jewish Teen Education and Engagement Funder Collaborative, which provides a national network and shared framework for teen initiatives like ours across the country. Our local community funders, the Associated Jewish Federation of Baltimore and the Joseph & Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds are essential pieces of our mission and their support makes our entire Baltimore Jewish community a better place.
