Youth Engagement Programs

Madrichim Teen Teaching Assistants

The Madrichim program is an opportunity to develop leadership skills though training and hands-on experience. Our Madrichim serve as teaching assistants in our classrooms and small groups, staff our junior youth groups, and provide one-on-one support for kids with mild to moderate disabilities. They are an essential component to the success of our youth programs! This is a paid opportunity or eligible for community service hours.

At MINCHA, we focus on community building, the formation of Jewish identity, living Jewish values, deeply connecting with each other, staff, and the B'nei Mitzvah experience, and feeling at home at Temple Shalom.
