Our Mission

Our mission is to provide essential and enjoyable summer camp, and year round extra-curricular experiences to urban youths of limited opportunity. By instilling a sense of belonging, UJCF harnesses the unique cultural values of the participants through attentive and innovative programs. An emphasis on education and social awareness encourages youngsters to reach their full potential in a responsible, ethical manner. Professional staff and trained mentors serve as role models stressing accountability and the merits of community betterment. At-risk youth, disabled and learning- disabled children are mainstreamed when possible in age appropriate settings.

Methodology

UJCF with the support of many businesses and individuals, is having a major impact on many issues confronting children & youth.

We identify families in need of help and reach out to them with support and funding to enable them the opportunity of attending after school or summer programs.

Our staff and volunteer leaders are deeply connected to day schools, summer camps, synagogues, community centers, in New York and around the world.

When people give to UJCF, they know that their funds will be used to provide critical help for children who may otherwise fall through the cracks.

Our programs impact children everywhere, bettering society as a whole, fulfilling our motto – “Today’s Children, Tomorrow’s Leaders”.
