JFounders Guiding Lights

Success at the level we strive for in this program is driven

by these principles keeping us focused on creating positive change in this world.

CREATIVITY

Creativity is not something you learn. It is something you unleash as it exists in every one of us. This is where we begin.

WISDOM

The lens of innovation in which we view our future is rooted in thousands of years of Jewish thought and divine wisdom.

ISRAEL

The miracle that is Israel, our nation, is, among many things, a story of innovation compelled to make the world a better place.

IMPROVEMENT

Whether it is because we have experienced the world’s silence or understand our role as a light unto the nations, Jews can’t remain indifferent.

How it works

MENTORS

Connecting young people who wish to change the world of tomorrow with adults making a real impact today is central to this program. Mentors are carefully selected, and matched with a group of students known as “Design Teams” to help guide and support them throughout each stage of the design process.

FINAL PRODUCT

The program is not solely an academic or philosophical pursuit but results-oriented. Each Design Team will produce a final product, which will include a detailed plan and prototype to be realized as a full-scale initiative or product. The program culminates with a product pitch and a graduation ceremony where top ideas will receive funding to pilot and scale.

DESIGN LABS

The program begins with an intensive workshop on innovative design and social entrepreneurship, followed by eight Design Labs where they learn from “specialists” and work closely with their mentor on designing their idea forward. The program ends with a final pitch event.

COLLEGE LEVE COURSEWORK

Throughout the process, students will learn in-depth about innovation, Israeli Start-Up Case Studies, and Jewish values of entrepreneurial and social leadership. They will be utilizing a custom curriculum designed for the academically accelerated high school student, and upon passing the final assessment, will receive a certificate of completion. We are also in the process of seeking and securing college credit for the program.
