The CTeen Network is inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, whose belief in the power of youth transformed the teen years into a time of purpose and self-discovery. CTeen harnesses the incredible potential of teenagers with awesome programs that bring teens together to give back to their communities and the environment.
Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment where teens can learn about themselves through giving to others, identify with individuals who share the same faith, and be part of a group that focuses on building core values and stresses positive character development.

Hey Cteens, it’s Rebecca from Chicago! I miss you all so much and hope you are all taking back and sharing the wonderful mitzvot and experiences you had! I can’t wait to see everyone next year, and I hope you all bring at least one new friend! Hopefully, we will cross paths sooner :). Love you guys!"

CTeen has provided my daughter with wonderful opportunities to do good deeds while having fun with her peers. I am very thankful that we have a CTeen in our community!

Last year, our fourteen-year-old son went to CTeen in NY. He raved about it for a year and could not wait to go back. This year, we sent him and his sixteen-year-old sister, and, once again, they had the greatest time. We live in a community that is mostly not Jewish. This gives our kids a chance to meet other Jewish teens from all areas of the country. We highly recommend this program. They were always in a safe and warm environment.

What an incredible experience! Our son feels more connected to his Judiasim than ever. He couldn't believe how many Jewish kids he met from all over. Wishes it was happening again in the Spring!

As a junior in high school, I have been exposed to many Jewish teen groups. But after my first CTeen Shabbaton, I realized that CTeen was the group for me. It was so great meeting people from around the world. I walked away so happy with my experience, that I didn't even want to leave. I can't wait for the next Shabbaton! :)
