For almost 120 years the JLGB has served our community with honour. Today’s JLGB is a modern, thriving, innovative and award winning organisation reaching out to over 4000 Jewish young people each year, offering them the opportunity to enrich their lives through a diverse range of positive experiences, exciting activities, leadership training and skills development programmes. The JLGB removes barriers to participation by providing positive activities within a fun, friendly, safe and structured environment, that meet the religious and cultural needs of the Jewish community. This includes the unique kosher provision of Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme, generously supported by the Pears Foundation, and directly delivered by the JLGB across schools, synagogues and youth groups ensures the entire Jewish community can be part of all that the DofE has to offer.
The recently launched new youth volunteering initiative ‘evolve’, is supported by the Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation, which creates a volunteering journey that embraces all Jewish young people throughout primary and secondary school and on to university. Leadership training is accredited by the National OCN and recognised by further education and employees therefore it can be used as part of an impressive CV with valuable skills and knowledge learnt for life. Alongside this are national camps, activities and Israel tour.
Prior to COVID, Glasgow ran a Junior company for P3 upwards in Newton Mearns Shul, with a variety of exciting activities designed for young Jewish children. Watch this space for it starting up again.
