Madrichim Program

Madrichim serve as teaching assistants in the classroom and may support our schools in other capacities.

Madrichim support our Religious and Hebrew Schools by working in the classrooms as a teaching assistant providing support to the teacher.   Working in this role provides an opportunity for our teens to build self-confidence, strengthen their own Jewish values, serve as role models for the younger children, and begin to learn practical teaching skills.  Madrichim are required to participate in a series of training sessions, held several times throughout the year on Sunday afternoons from 12:15-1:30pm.  Eighth and ninth grade students serve as madrichim volunteers and may earn community service for their work.  Beginning in tenth grade, if a teen has volunteered for at least one year, they are eligible to be paid for their work. For more information about serving as a madrich (male) or madricha (female), please review our Madrichim Introductory Letter and Application
