Community Resources for Youth & Young Families

The Thom and Lisa Mandel Early Childhood Education Center at the Shaw JCC  is for children 6 weeks through pre-k and their families. It's where our children make their first discoveries and first connections outside of family,  where trained and educated teachers come every day with joy - most of them have taught with us for 12 years or more! -  and where community events bring families together beyond drop off and pick up hours.

The Lippman School offers a globalized K-8 independent school education unsurpassed in the Greater Akron Area. We present small classes, carefully selected teachers, and a fast-paced curriculum. With value added character development, international perspective and robust sense of community, students easily connect with their peer group and gain confidence through a sense of belonging.

Receive free children's books by mail! The PJ library is funded by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation in partnership with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. Explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music for children 6 months old through 8 years old.

At Camp JCC, your child will meet and make life-long friends, explore new adventures, and create memories they will treasure forever. Join us for Camp JCC 2015 and your child will have an unforgettable summer! With a nurturing, welcoming, and inclusive environment, your child will be part of a family that they will always remember.
