What is JCC Presentense Chicago?
Who we are:
Our goal is to ignite social entrepreneurs, young Jewish professionals, with innovative ideas who want to make the world a better place. By tapping the talents of young Jewish volunteers, we can help accelerate social innovators to develop their ideas into sustainable and socially responsible ventures.
WHAT WE DO:
JCC PresenTense Chicago is organized around an Executive Team, young business professionals who volunteer their passion and time to manage the program in all of its details, from recruiting and admitting fellows, to engaging volunteer coaches and mentors, to spreading the word through networking and creating marketing materials, to shepherding the fellows through their training process.
The program ignites social entrepreneurs by providing admitted fellows a six-month entrepreneurial bootcamp experience, which includes training seminars, commitment to regular milestones, and the support of volunteer coaches and mentors.
