March of the Living

High School Program  (Grades 10-12)
*Please note that CTC Contingency travels every second year


On March of the Living thousands of Jewish teens - and adults on a separate trip - from around the world gather for a once-in-a-lifetime experience as they march three kilometers from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the largest concentration camp complex built by the Nazis during World War II. Past participants of March of the Living often describe the two weeks they spent one in Poland and one in Israel as one of the most significant experiences of their lives.

Jewish Federation’s Role
Jewish Federation is proud to offset the cost of March of the Living by $2,000 for each local participant. The funds for this are generated through the Federation Annual Campaign, and are distributed to participants through Israel and Overseas Connections fund. We also provide support through staff resources, program leader training and participant education.


Scholarships are available through the Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver and the Royal Canadian Legion - Shalom Branch. For more information click here.
