Teen Connection. a na-
tional program of the B'nai
B'rith Youth Organization,
sponsored in cooperation
with the Jewish Community
Center, has recently been
established in this area.
Teen Connection is only for
seventh and eighth grade
Jewish teens. The program
will provide a link between
the Jewish community and
Jewish youth who do not
have access to teen programs
until grade nine.
The program is based at
the Jewish Community
Center and will offer a wide
range of social, recreational,
and Jewish cultural activities
at both the main and Jimmy
Prentis Morris Branch
buildings. Field trips in and
around the Detroit
metropolitan area will be of-
fered to the Teen Connection
members. A monthly
newsletter will be mailed to
each member highlighting
the upcoming activities and
events, and each member will

also receive a subscription to
The Shofar, the international
BBYO newspaper, which will
highlight Teen Connection
activities around the country.
Teen Connection provides
staff-developed and staff-led
programs, but also allows the
teens themselves to have in-
put into the program.
The first kickoff gathering
of the Teen Connection pro-
gram will be held at 8:00 p.m.
on Oct. 17, at the main
Jewish Community Center.
Music, dancing, volleyball,
basketball, racquetball and
refreshments will be
provided.
Free shuttle service will be
available for those living in
the Southfield/Oak Park area.
The shuttle will leave the
JPM at 7:30 p.m. and will
return the teens to the JPM
at about 11 p.m. There is a
fee. The dress is casual.
For information, call
Leanie Gunsberg, Teen Con-
nection coordinator,
