NFTY-CAR Teen Leadership Day

November 23, 2019
North Shore Congregation Israel, Glencoe, IL

Are you on your youth group board? Are you a madrich(a)? Are you a leader at your temple? Well then this leadership day is for you!

NFTY and ChARJE (the Chicago Association of Reform Jewish Educators) have partnered to create the ultimate leadership day. We will focus on developing real life tangible skills that will help you in the Sunday school classroom, plan for your next event, but will also go beyond that. You will learn skills that will help you articulate what you are doing at your temple and sell this skill when you apply for your first job or college.

The skill areas that we will focus on are:

  • Being an Influencer
  • Public Speaking
  • Improving Your Résumé
  • Identifying Your Professional Skills
  • Teaching Different Types of Learners

This program will be in parallel to NFTY Nashir: Teen Songleading Seminar. The two programs will be at the same location and we will eat dinner together. If you are interested in developing your music skills, check out NFTY Nashir.

Regular: $15 USD

This event is open to any Jewish teen in grades 8 to 12.


  • All fees are in US Dollars
