Tivnu: Building Justice

Social Impact Travel Lab: Portland, Oregon

Why does Portland attract so many social innovators, entrepreneurs, and organizers? What role is the Jewish community playing in building a better, more inclusive, sustainable Portland?

Just when school lets out and you’ve got the itch to travel, join Tivnu on our first col-LAB-oration with NYC’s The Greenhouse – a social-impact design lab for Jewish teens and their peers, teaching critical thinking, creative problem solving, storytelling, and social entrepreneurship. We’ll explore Portland and meet with local government, business, and non-profit leaders to explore the city through the lens of social innovation.
