In the past few years, StandWithUs has increased its scope of activity to reach into high school classrooms by identifying the need to train, empower, and inspire younger students prior to their entrance into college. Our high school department provides educational workshops, seminars, presentations, and resources to high schools across North America. While our main goal is to inspire young Jewish high school students, we aim to reach a wider audience by providing these services to public schools that do not commonly have the resources to delve into such a hotly contested topic as the Arab-Israeli conflict. In 2012 we partnered with the MZ Foundation to found the StandWithUs-MZ Teens Internship program -- a yearlong mentorship program for Jewish high school students that trains, educates, and inspires them to be leaders once they enter college.
