Want to lead a Yiddish activity in your community? Maybe a reading circle, bowling night, Shabbos dinner, or some other type of get-together?
Apply to Shtrom (“Stream”), Yugntruf’s new program where you, our members, can choose whatever type of Yiddish-language activity you want to run!
If you lead an activity entirely in Yiddish that brings in at least three participants, Yugntruf will give you a mini-grant of $25 per person (up to a maximum of $200).
Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Let us know what kind of an activity you’d like to plan, how many people you expect, and if you’ll receive other support for your event.
Our heartfelt thanks to the Mordkhe and Charne Schaechter Fund for making this program possible.
1) Is there an age restriction for Shtrom applicants? Shtrom is targeted toward Yiddish speakers younger than 35 years old, but we’ll take into consideration applications from everyone.
2) What kind of activities may I organize? Shtrom activities can be whatever you want, as long as they’re in Yiddish. Be creative!
3) What kind of information should I submit in my Shtrom application? You should submit a description of your planned activity, when it will take place, and how many Yiddish-speaking participants you expect. You must also let us know if you anticipate receiving funding for your activity from other sources.
4) What’s the deadline for sending in an application? Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
5) How much funding could I receive? Yugntruf will give $25 for each person expected to attend the selected Shtrom activity, for a maximum total mini-grant of $200. The mini-grant must be used for a Shtrom project within one year of the grant award date.
6) What should I send to Yugntruf after my Shtrom activity takes place? Yugntruf expects three things from Shtrom leaders after the activity: an address list of activity participants (names and street/email addresses), photos of the activity, and a video greeting from the participants.
7) How can I apply?
Email an application — in Yiddish — with the above-mentioned details about your proposed activity to email@example.com
8) Who’s providing the funding for Shtrom? Shtrom is generously supported by the Mordkhe and Charne Schaechter Fund.
