Teen Education

Project Chaverim Fellowship 

The Project Chaverim Teen Fellowship is a Jewish education and leadership training program designed to engage a cohort of 9th‐12th graders to develop their Israel content knowledge and leadership capacities and to use these skills to engage, inspire and teach Hebrew School 3rd and 4th grade students about Israel.  The Project Chaverim Teen fellows are led by CSAIR Rabbinic Intern, Ben Freed.

The experience includes group activities, exploration of complexities of Israel, leadership training and opportunities to mentor younger kids.  Teen Fellows meet Sunday mornings 10 AM – 12 PM and on occasional Friday evenings as leaders of youth activities for the CSAIR Ruach Shabbat Family Experiences.

Requirements for Project Chaverim Fellows:

  • Fellows must be available to be at CSAIR on most Sundays from 10am – 12 PM and on the selected Friday evenings. 

  • Fellows must be able to work well with 3rd and 4th graders, their peers and accept coaching and instruction from an adult. 

  • Fellows must be willing to learn and practice skills of respectful and open communication during passionate disagreement.

Benefits of becoming a Project Chaverim Fellow: 

  • Fellows learn about Israel with depth, nuance and complexity and are provided an opportunity to explore multiple perspectives and points of view in a safe learning environment.

  • Fellows will acquire skills in working with kids in a Jewish education setting. These skills may be used later to obtain a position as a camp madrich/a and Hebrew School teacher. 

  • Fellows will work closely with their peers and a coach to develop innovative, creative and meaningful experiences for their 3rd or 4th grade partners. 

  • Fellows will be recognized by the Hebrew School and the CSAIR congregation for their contribution toward the Jewish Education of our community. 

  • Fellows have the opportunity to be an integral part of an innovative experiment in congregational education.

Teens interested in participating should contact Mason Voit, Education Director.
