T&V Teens

T&V Teens is an opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to participate in fun programs and make a difference in their community. The teens themselves help plan and implement programs with the support and guidance of our Teen Coordinator, Landon Braverman. 
 
If you have any questions, program suggestions, or just want to say hi, you can email Landon at teens@tandv.org.

Teen Programming at T&V
 
MADRIḤIM (counselor) Program
This program offers high school students the opportunity to gain skills as assistant teachers in our Hebrew School program throughout the year.  This hands-on experience working with kids in an educational setting will help them gain valuable skills to use in the future, and allow them to function as role models to students in our community.
Community service hours are awarded for participating or, you can elect to receive a stipend.
In addition to helping out in classes, Madriḥim will be asked to attend several training sessions throughout the year. In these sessions, we will explore leadership skills, teaching techniques, and the importance of being a role model for younger students.
For more information, please email teens@tandv.org

 

Mitzvah Days
Join T&V Teens in making a difference!
Each year, the teens select several projects to take part in such as volunteering at community events, T&V annual Thanks for Giving Toiletry Drive and care packages for Victims of Violence, MLK Day of Service and various environment causes.  In the past teens have visited soup kitchens, senior centers, and shelters. As part of these programs, we will explore and discuss the concepts of Tikkun Olam and our role as Jews towards others and the world. Community service credit will be given.
 
 
Monthly Programs
Call it Kadima, USY, or just plain T&V teens, our teens like to get together and have fun. We usually meet at least once a month.
