New York Area Youth Professionals Network
About this Network:
Join this network of youth engagement workers, experiential educators, and teen professionals to build relationships with colleagues in the field, examine key challenges that arise in their roles and explore opportunities for collaboration.
- This network is designed for Youth Professionals in NYC/LI/Westchester. Folks who work part-time or full-time with 6th-12th graders at any Jewish organization (congregations, schools, JCCs, service learning, youth philanthropy, and more!) are perfect for this network!
- This network will meet online.
- If you are interested in connecting in-person with colleagues closer to home, check out our Westchester, Long Island, and New York City-area roundtables. Participants are encouraged to join both their local roundtable and the regional network.
About the Facilitator:
Loen Amer has been an experiential Jewish educator working with teens since she was one herself! She has served at Temple Israel of Great Neck as the Director of Teen and Community Engagement, and at Bet Torah in Mt Kisco–first as their Director of Youth Engagement, and then as their Director of Experiential Learning for Children and Teens. Loen has also worked for Ramah Israel, the Hillel at Hofstra University, Woodbury Jewish Center, and Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn Heights.
Loen has a voracious love for lifelong Jewish learning, and most recently studied Torah le’shmah, Torah for its own sake, at the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem. She lives on Manhattan's Upper West Side and enjoys baking and reading.
