Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are not running any face-to-face youth provision at this time. However, the good news is that JLGB Virtual is continuing every Monday - Thursday until the end of August. Watch now at www.jlgb.org/virtual

For Parents

Why should your children get involved with the JLGB?

If you're alumni you'll know the answer, but if you're coming to JLGB through a recommendation, you have a right to know why we think JLGB is the best Jewish youth organisation in the UK.

  • JLGB members grow up to be responsible, community-focused leaders. In the words of the former Chief Rabbi Dr Jonathan Sacks: 'The JLGB has developed many generations of young leaders who have learned, through their involvement with the JLGB, the qualities, skills and attributes of good leadership'
  • All programmes, projects, activities and outings are carefully planned to include everyone, regardless of ability or levels of confidence
  • Every JLGB leader has a DBS (formerly CRB) police check, they are trained in first-aid and they have undergone a rigorous and comprehensive training and leadership programme
  • Being a part of the JLGB family provides them with the opportunity to learn about their Jewish identity and heritage and to make Jewish friends from all over the UK and beyond
  • Your children will become part of the JLGB family and make friends for life!

While your kids are studying for their GCSEs, JLGB is a valuable outlet for their skills. We have a dedicated space where they can study and there is anecdotal evidence to suggest that kids who take a 'proper' break once a week from their studies do better at exams. They are away from the TV and social media but they remain in a social environment with like-minded people and they have access to our leaders who can coach, mentor, help and offer advice and contacts whenever they need it.

One last thing – you get them out from under your feet for an evening a week!
