Step Up

Program Overview:

Young people are growing up in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. They can see, perhaps more than any generation that has come before them, the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead. At Stand Up, we are committed to playing our part in helping young people understand the social justice landscape, while inspiring them to make their own invaluable contribution to the Jewish and wider community.

Our Step Up education program is designed to give B'nei Mitzvah aged students the opportunity to take a step up into their Jewish adulthood and to understand the responsibilities and challenges that come with that, grappling with these questions through an innovative social justice experience. Step Up enhances the Bar/Bat Mitzvah year by providing a pivotal learning curve for students to gain a greater understanding of the world around them. The program empowers young Jewish Australians to become leaders in their community, guided by core Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (justice) and Chessed (kindness) to create positive change in the world.

Testimonials

My favorite program was going to the market and doing the $2 challenge. I learnt about Indigenous rights, the poverty cycle, and so much more. Something that shocked me was the privilege walk. I learnt how privileged I am.
– Anoushka

 

This program is proudly supported by Stand Up's major partners: JCA and the Gandel Foundation.
