Each year the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards celebrate US teens who have demonstrated remarkable leadership and are actively engaged in projects that embody the value of tikkun olam. Teens have been recognized for projects they’ve initiated and projects they’ve enhanced through their leadership. Projects have benefited the Jewish community as well as the general community.
The $36,000 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards, based on the Jewish concept of “repairing the world,” recognize Jewish teens who are exceptional role models in their communities and beyond. Recipients are acknowledged at a celebratory luncheon where they receive their award which they may use to further their philanthropic work or their education.
