SAJ’s Makom program trains the next generation of Jewish leaders and emerging educators. Students in 8th-12th grade serve in administrative, interactive, and creative tasks in Makom. As we move to an online program, they are essential partners in keeping every student engaged in a virtual classroom. Teen Assistants participate in training alongside the Makom teaching team to develop skills for personal, school, and professional development. Teen Assistants are also community members who are role models for younger students, and they are are automatically part of our Teen social program.
