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.

Additional Information:

  • 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.
