World Jewish Congress

Future Leadership

As the World Jewish Congress works each day to protect, defend, and ensure the betterment of Jewish communities across the globe, we recognize the importance of ensuring that the future of the Jewish people is safeguarded with trained leaders ready to confront future challenges.

To meet these needs, WJC President Ronald S. Lauder initiated the WJC Jewish Diplomatic Corps and WJC NextGen. These two programs work with individuals, aged 16-45, work in symbiosis to develop, engage, and empower our Jewish communities’ future leaders.

By educating and providing them with the resources, networks, and opportunities to succeed we offer them outstanding opportunities and networking outlets to support their local communities and impact global Jewish interests through diplomacy, advocacy, and public policy for today and tomorrow.
