NETWORK STORY:

Roundtables are centered around building relationships with colleagues in the field of Jewish Teen Engagement and Education.

  • Youth Professional Roundtables are a space where relationships begin. I not only met peers during the roundtables, but I was able to continue relationships with peers beyond the roundtable meetings. We met on our own to brainstorm ideas, troubleshoot, and support one another”. - Roundtable Participant

Roundtables are centered around collaboration in order to elevate ideas from colleagues across the field of Jewish Teen Engagement and Education.

  • I appreciated the discussions about the different types of programming we are offering throughout the field. It was a collaborative way to share what we are doing while creating a space to workshop ideas for new programs”. - Roundtable Participant
