Bay Area Mentor Program for all Jewish Educators
Our Bay Area Mentor Program is for all local Jewish educators who are new to the field, or in the early stages of their careers. This program is in its sixth season, and it is a wonderful way to offer new staff members support and guidance from a seasoned educator.
As I go into working with teens I can be more prepared to hold a safer space for them. My language and consciousness around issues of gender and identity can only help the teens feel more welcomed and safe and I can set a positive, inclusive example for my community.Youth professional
JLW has been instrumental in my personal and professional growth. I am grateful for the many high quality learning opportunities that are offered to me as a teen educator, surrounded by my peers in a supportive learning environment.Youth professional
