Jewish Educational Interns JEI (8th-12th)

This program gives our teens an opportunity to be involved in our Temple school and Jewish Community while developing their own leadership skills. Our Jewish Educational Interns (JEI) assist Temple School teachers in the classroom on a Sunday morning and/or Wednesday evening class. Some JEI will work with the current 7th graders on their prayers and blessings and assist on Wednesday evenings.

Mentoring Seminar – In addition to optional meetings with their lead teacher in the classroom to develop a lesson plan, JEI will meet outside of class once monthly.  In these sessions, JEI will explore effective communication, problem-solving, behavior management, self-advocacy, inclusion, using interactive games in the classroom, text study, and more. There will be time for reflection on their classroom experiences as well as time to bond with the other teen assistants. Students will help develop their seminar curriculum as we move forward each month.
Who can be a JEI? Teens who have completed their Beit Mitzvah can apply to become JEI. We will take as many Jewish Educational Interns as we have room for in our classrooms. We are looking for teens who are able to take on the responsibility of being an awesome role model, fulfilling the roles of assisting teachers, and interacting positively with students. JEI will receive a JEI calendar and must commit to assisting 23 Temple School classes per year and attending all scheduled monthly meetings. JEI are expected to communicate if illness or an important conflict arises. JEI will accrue community service hours.
