“Where Education, Volunteerism and Fun go Hand in Hand”

JYN's "Student Exchange Program” partners High School teens & Elementary School children in a positive Jewish environment where everybody gains!


ELEMENTARY STUDENTS: Children in Elementary School (Grades 5-7)

Children will be in a safe, Jewish and stimulating environment with older responsible teens of our community, who will be on hand to help them with their homework, prepare for exams etc… They will also enjoy unique Jewish crafts, sports, and outings supported and directed by their teen mentors.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: Teens in High School (Grades 11-12)

Teens will have a very special opportunity to do something meaningful for the community. This venue will allow them to develop their Mentoring & Leadership qualities through a special peer mentoring training followed by a year of hands-on experience. They will also be able to fulfill their community service requirements through this extraordinary yearlong program of social and communal activism. Participants will develop a real sense of responsibility and to learn to be a more giving and caring individual..


THE PROGRAM:

JYN Student Exchange, Peer Mentoring Program will begin in September 2017. It will run weekly throughout the school year.
