February 1, 8, 15 & 22 and March 22 & 29
The Beth Tzedec Student Mentorship Program partners Elementary School children with High School teens in a positive Jewish environment. Teens and children will be paired up based on social compatibility, subject matter and activity preference. Though the Mentors arrive at 5:00pm, RHA students are welcome to stay directly after school and aftercare will be provided.
Children will be in a safe and stimulating environment with responsible teens from our community. Each child will be paired with a teen mentor to help them with their homework in various academic subjects. For the final segment of the program, children will enjoy unique Jewish activities, crafts and sports, supported and directed by their teen mentors.
Teens have the special opportunity to do something meaningful for their community through the Beth Tzedec Student Mentorship Program. This program will allow each teen mentor to develop leadership skills while gaining volunteer service hours. Each mentor is required to attend a peer mentoring training session provided by Beth Tzedec. Teens will assist elementary students with their homework in various academic subjects and will develop and direct activities, crafts and sports for children. This extraordinary program full of social development will empower mentors with a sense of responsibility for the youth of their community.
