RAJMN TEEN FELLOWSHIP

RAJMN is entering its fifth year with the Teen Fellowship Program. The RAJMN Teen Fellowship Program is a school-year long program for High School students which starts in September and runs for 10 months. Participants will explore and expand their understanding of who they are, who they want to be, and how they want to make a mark on the world. Monthly guest speakers will cover various Jewish topics (Israel, Holocaust, Antisemitism, Jewish History, art, music, etc). Participants will be challenged to define their strengths, challenges, and personal leadership goals. RAJMN will provide the tools, feedback, and mentoring they need to experiment, collaborate, and learn from their experiences. Teens will have leadership opportunities in fundraising, event planning, marketing, recruitment, and volunteering in the RAJMN community. Fellowship participants also have the option of attending Jewish conferences in the US and worldwide which RAJMN will provide stipends for.
