@akiva – J2Gether

J2Gether is an opportunity for high school and college students to serve as mentors to younger Clevelanders. Participants will be trained in facilitation, grow in their Jewish content knowledge, and expand their leadership skills.

The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland and @akiva are proud to offer J2Gether – an opportunity for Jewish Clevelanders to learn, mentor, and grow together.

J2Gether has a track for everyone!

J2Gether: Learning – Pick your topic, and learn at your own pace with a mentor. You’ll have the opportunity to receive a certificate of completion at the end of each course. All courses are 3 – 4 sessions long, and are a chance for you to delve into Jewish content, leadership, and connection building.

J2Gether Learning is geared towards 3th – 12th graders.

J2Gether: Homework Helpers –  With social distancing and hybrid and virtual school, we know that sometimes it’s great to have a buddy ready to help with your homework. Through this version of J2Gether, our youngest students will be paired with high school + college aged mentors to assist with homework, check in, and learn together.

J2Gether Homework Helpers is geared towards 3rd – 8th graders.

…and J2gether is also about teen leadership! –  Take your learning to the next level by participating in a training workshop focusing on facilitation and program leadership, and put it into practice by becoming a mentor yourself. Leadership participants will have the chance to work with students in grades 3 – 7, putting into practice all of the skills and knowledge of J2Gether. At the completion of the training + one round of facilitation, you will receive a stipend.

J2Gether Leadership is geared towards 10th – 12th graders and college students.
