Jteen is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization committed to helping Jewish teens receive the emotional support they may need. There are often situations when a young person has no one to turn to or just doesn’t want anyone to know what they are going through.
Text, which is at the core of what we do, is a medium that teens are comfortable with, and it provides the anonymity that is vital for a community helpline. We have also just opened a Jteen phone line enabling teenagers to call us if they prefer that to text messaging.
Our volunteer counsellors and therapists are ready to provide non-judgemental support and empowerment for Jewish adolescents going through any emotional challenges, and if necessary, refer them on to the appropriate organisations.
On the 26th of June 2022, Jteen will be participating in the annual Maccabi Fun Run. We would love you to support us and our amazing team of runners.
