Community Leadership Opportunities

Join the NEXTGen Detroit movement and make your mark in the exciting transformation and growth of Jewish Detroit.

Leadership Development
From introductory to high-level, we have a series of leadership development programs that will strengthen your skills and confidence as both a community leader and a professional.

Committees
NEXTGen Detroit is a working partnership between our professional staff and our amazing army of lay-leaders. Joining a committee is the perfect way to make your ideas a reality and help us continue to create a vibrant community.

NEXTGen Detroit Board
Members of the NEXTGen Detroit Board serve as outreach strategists and community ambassadors, charged with contributing to the development and implementation of the programs that will attract and retain the next generation of young Jewish Detroiters. Every year, a limited amount of seats open up, and we put out a call for Board applications in the spring.
