Jewish Women’s Foundation accepting Young Leaders applications


Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches, an independent local nonprofit, is currently accepting applications for its “Young Leaders Society.”

Open to women living or working in Palm Beach County who are 45 or younger, the program offers leadership training, networking and mentorship. Applications are available online through Jan. 12.

“Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches is leading the way as a public voice for justice and equality,” said Tami Baldinger, the foundation’s CEO. “Our Young Leaders Society program exemplifies our commitment to the next generation of leaders and is an incredible opportunity for women to learn the skills they need for effective leadership and to be part of a group of women leaders who support each other and gender equality.”

The Young Leaders Society meets monthly and the first part of the program provides training and leadership development workshops, including topics such as mental health, financial literacy, becoming a better negotiator and networking.

During the second year of the “Young Leaders Society,” members are paired with a dedicated mentor who provides continued guidance and one-on-one mentoring.

For more information, or to apply for the Young Leaders Society, email Jennifer Kryshka at or call (561) 275-2200.
