Madrichim Teen Teacher Training Program
Madrichim is a weekly class for students in grades 8 and 9 who are interested in learning to teach in our Youth and Family Education program. Madrichim attend classes in which they learn about child development, classroom management, learning and teaching styles, lesson planning and implementation and deepen their Judaic knowledge. They also spend time observing what is going on in our Youth and Family Education classrooms.
Madrichim is full-year, weekly commitments. Classes meet on Sunday mornings during regular Youth and Family Education sessions. Students who complete the program will be eligible to become paid teachers in our program for the following school year. Completing the program includes regular weekly attendance (make up sessions are required for excessive absences), preparing and teaching a lesson and demonstrating competence in the content areas presented.
Madrichim is a leadership-training program for teens who desire to work closely with younger children in a Jewish environment. This program is good preparation for summer camp counseling jobs as well as future employment in religious schools.
There is an additional fee of $200 for the Madrichim and students must be enrolled in and regularly attend The Emanu-El Fellowship program. If you are interested, please complete the application and send it back with a check made out to “Temple Emanu-El Madrichim Program”. If participation in the program does not work out, the check will be returned to you.
