JustCity Leadership Institute is an innovative precollege program in Jewish change leadership, brought to you by The Jewish Theological Seminary, AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps, Camp Ramah, and United Synagogue Youth. From Sunday, June 28, to Sunday, July 12, 2015, you will build a network of peers who are also committed to learning change leadership skills, positive social change, and bringing their newfound skills home so they too can make a difference in their communities. Students will live together in the JTS residence halls in single-sex suites, and engage in Jewish text study with JTS faculty. Afternoons will be devoted to learning in the field, and evenings and weekends will be spent further exploring New York City.
What does a typical day look like?
Monday through Thursday, you will spend mornings in class and afternoons doing skill-building programs throughout New York City and meeting with changemakers in a variety of fields. Fridays will be spent doing group service projects and engaging in field trips around the city. Evenings and the weekend will be devoted to further exploring the city, building community, and celebrating Shabbat. In addition to classes and workshops, you will make friends, go on field trips, engage with Jewish arts and culture, and have time for summer fun.
