Young Leadership, which is also referred to as YoungUIA in Victoria, is about connecting our generation to Israel and evoking a sense of belonging for our supporters. Our vital work ensures the continuity of Jewish support to Israel and to all Jews who are in need - whether from a physical, social, economic or educational threat. Globally, we are involved in four major areas of action; aliyah and absorption, youth-at-risk, education and strengthening Israel’s social infrastructure.
YoungUIA, which targets Jews from the ages of 18-40 is an important link within the chain of Jewish nation-building. Our division is comprised of Young Leadership (18-40) and Major Donors (donors who have an annual commitment of at least $1,000). Within the demographic range of YoungUIA, events and activities are targeted to specific cohorts, namely 18-25/30, and 25/30-40. For more information, please click here.
Young Leadership in NSW is a Division of UIA for young adults aged 18-34 prior to transitioning into Young Families.
Keren Hayesod - UIA's YL Division cultivates young leaders in Jewish communities around the world, engaging young adults and enabling them to play an active role in responding to contemporary challenges in Jewish life. By enhancing the involvement of young adults with their Jewish heritage and their relationship with the State of Israel and the Jewish people, the YL Division facilitates a collective international effort to ensure the security of the State of Israel and the well-being of the Jewish people.
YL provides a forum for young adults to express their support for Israel through a series of fundraising events held predominately in February and March each year. These events are the largest of their type in Australia for young Jewish people and are a powerful demonstration of support of Jews showing solidarity with Israel.
YL hosts an interactive monthly mentor program with a focus on mentoring, learning and connecting young professionals with successful leaders within the community.
