PresenTense Colorado firmly believes that teens are leaders of the present. Their six-month social innovation Fellowship will help you develop an idea and give you the entrepreneurial skills you need to launch. You'll be paired with a Coach and have the opportunity to apply for up to $1,000 in funding. These skills, resources, and networks will enable you to create a project, big or small, that makes a difference in your community and engages your peers in what you're passionate about. Applications are due September 30, 2016.

Positions are also available on PresenTense Colorado's Student Advisory Board. The Student Advisory Board is the voice of their peers, supporting PresenTense Colorado in catering to the local Jewish teen community. Advisory Board members lead the recruitment and admissions process, allocate grant funds to Fellows and their projects, and coordinate logistics around events and marketing. Members also help mentor Fellows as they develop and implement their projects through PresenTense's new Peer program. The Student Advisory Board is crucial to making PresenTense Colorado a program for teens, by teens. Applications are due September 12, 2016.
