JLGB CHANGES TO MEET THE NEEDS
OF YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
2009 was a fantastic year for the JLGB. The JLGB had been going through some exciting changes to help better meet the needs and support local Jewish communities. The first of the major changes was announced via YouTube, when JLGB changed its national structure - it is now divided in to 8 regions across the UK.
JLGB’s new South London and The South region covers Bromley, Kingston, Sutton, Croydon as well as Brighton and Bournemouth. JLGB welcome new members to come along and visit and see what is on offer to them. Seniors are aged 11 – 18 and Juniors 8 – 11.
Also as part of the exciting changes the JLGB has launched a brand new skills based awards scheme called the "Enterprise Award". This cutting edge achievement and personal development programme is designed to meet the needs of today’s generation of young Jewish children.
One important change, to meet the needs of the local community, following the successful JLGB regeneration meeting in South West London, was the opening of the new Kingston JLGB. Kingston JLGB were delighted with the numbers at their first meeting in their new premises. Over a dozen new members attended with more anticipated. Young Jewish youth who live in the Kingston, Wimbledon, Sutton and surrounding areas are invited to join them for their weekly gatherings. Kingston JLGB meet on a Tuesday evening.
