ABOUT THE BOULDER JEWISH TEEN INITIATIVE

The Boulder Jewish Teen Initiative (BJTI) is searching for a dynamic and experienced individual who can help us grow and continue the successful work we carry out engaging Jewish teenagers. With this understanding applicants should be flexible with both their time commitment and workload. Candidates would ideally have prior experience working in the non-profit or Jewish non-profit sectors as well as group facilitation experience. Candidates should have strong communication skill, and have a desire to grow and develop the teens in our Jewish community.

The Boulder Jewish Teen Initiative is an organization whose mission is to help high school students connect with other Jewish peers and explore their (Jewish) identity and relevant topics in a safe, welcoming, space. We offer three primary programs for 8th-12th grade students from all affiliations, backgrounds, schools, and Jewish identities in the Greater Boulder Area:

1. NaviG8, a pluralistic year-long program that is distinctly different from other Jewish teen experiences by approaching participants as a whole person and utilizing experiential education modalities. Students meet new peers while participating in student centered experiences, and 8th grade specific skill building. We explore topics ranging from identity development, cooking, Israel Narratives, and peer pressure. Participants will

grow into a more resilient young adults, informed global citizens, and modern Jews.

2. Jewish Culture Clubs. These clubs offer a space at local high schools for students to meet new peers, engage in experiential learning and explore upcoming Jewish holidays, current events, and topics that our students choose through Jewish frameworks. We support student leaders in running these clubs in five public high schools across the Greater Boulder area.

3. Teen Advisory Board. The space where Jewish teen leaders gather to plan and design content and activities for our high school clubs. We help these emerging leaders grow by also teaching and practicing relevant skills and provide mentorship throughout the year.

BJTI is a program of the Boulder Jewish Community Center and funded by Rose Community Foundation.
