Middle school and high school can be such a challenging time! We want students to have an outlet where they can get support and continue to develop in a healthy way to become leaders in our community.
To that end, we have developed our innovative Atideinu Alumni program, where our students can stay connected with us during the pivotal times of Grades 7-9, honing their skills and building their confidence.
As part of the program, our teens continue to work on self-esteem, character and emotional development, specifically focused on the issues that middle school and high school students face.
This extended enrichment program offers not only additional skill-building, but a unique opportunity for children to experience a mentoring relationship. Graduates are matched up with an adult alumni advisor and form a mentor/mentee relationship through weekly meetings.
“My eldest is now in the Alumni program. It brings a smile to his face! You can ask any of his Rebbeim or Moros and they will tell you, he is not a smiler! He loves it there and is always eager to go! He gained effective communication skills and important tools in dealing with difficult adults, especially teachers.”
In addition to the weekly mentoring program, once a month, all the alumni and advisors get together for an activity relating to the themes of that month. This opportunity to meet monthly as a group supports team-building, camaraderie and community.
The Alumni Program is a unique opportunity for you to get involved by making a donation in honor of or in loving tribute to a family member.
