Teens Can IDENTIFY (TCI)
TCI provides Jewish resources, student leadership opportunities, and cultural programming on independent high school campuses. By working directly with the schools, TCI creates and provides compelling content for Jewish student clubs, all-school programming, classrooms and inter-school activities. Each program is designed to engage students and their peers by making it easy to participate and inclusive to all. TCI focuses on creating opportunities for leadership training, exploration of identity and service learning - all experienced through a Jewish lens.
Join us for a special program or event with ADASHA: Creative Arts through a Jewish Lens!

The TCI Model:
- Meet students where they are – geographically and emotionally
- Engage students in all of their environments - classrooms, clubs, assemblies, service learning projects and field‐trips
- Reach the people students trust and respect - teachers, deans, chaplains, diversity directors and service‐learning coordinators
- Create an intellectual discourse and high-caliber programs
- Ground Jewish learning in multicultural theory and practice
- Promote process‐based learning over outcome‐based learning – encourage critical thinking rather than forced knowledge
TCI programs are supported by The Samuel Bronfman Foundation, The Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds, The Jacob & Hilda Blaustein Fund for the Enrichment of Jewish Education of THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, Jewish Education Enhancement Projects, The David and Barbara B. Hirschhorn Foundation, and other private donors.
